Andalusia is known for its natural beauty and magnificent coast. To truly experience the splendor of southern Spain, venture into the countryside on this full day tour. Visit an ancient fortress, local markets, quaint boutiques, and historic streets all in one day. Ride in comfort from your starting point in Malaga to the towns of Nerja and Frigiliana for a true taste of the Andalusian coast.
Begin your Malaga day tour in Frigiliana, where you will visit the remains of an ancient fortress built by the Moors. The building is now a molasses factory and offers visitors first hand experience in the juxtaposition of old and new. Your guide will share with you the rich history of the town and then allow you to explore on your own. Be sure to visit the local shops that sell traditional pottery, produce, and the region's famously sweet wine. The residents are proud of their town's heritage, and during the last weeks of August, the town celebrates the Festival of the Three Cultures to honor the region's significant cultural influences and peaceful co-habitation of Christian, Muslum, and Jewish people.
Just six kilometers south of Frigiliana is the coastal town of Nerja. Once a sleepy fishing village, this eclectic town is now a popular vacation spot. Winding cobblestone streets and brilliantly white buildings await you in the town's oldest quarter. With time to explore Nerja's many boutiques and restaurants, you'll get to know the local sights and tastes of this growing coastal town. For magnificent views of the coast and the sea, walk along the Balcon de Europa (The Balcony of Europe). The adjacent Promenade is filled with shops and cafes. It's the perfect place to amble along with an ice cream cone. During your free time, you might also choose to visit nearby prehistoric caves (at an additional cost). The Caves of Nerja are caverns that cover nearly three miles and often host concerts due to the unparalleled acoustics created by this natural amphitheater. Rejoin your guide and group to return in air conditioned comfort to your starting point. For an authentic experience in the countryside, book your seat on this full day tour of Nerja and Frigiliana.
