The Nerja Cave is located 158 meters above sea level and is with 4,823 meters, one of the most topographically developed caves in Andalusia. It has three entrances, two subcircular torques and next to them, an entrance enabled a year after the discovery, in 1960, for the access of the visitors.

The cavity has a practically horizontal development, with about 750 meters in length, measured along its major axis and a vertical drop of about 68 meters. It goes 37 meters above the reference level, located on the floor of the entrance, and 31 meters below it. The Tourist Galleries, with a volume of 106,286 m3 and an area of 9,371 m2, correspond, approximately, to a third of the total of the cave. The Museum of Nerja offers a panoramic view of the history and the environment in which it is framed, and an analytical presentation of the themes and issues that characterize and distinguish it. The plot of the Museum is the rich local history, from prehistory to the present, focused on the most important aspects of each historical period.
