In the Axarquía, where we have our vineyard, you will also find the spectacular Nerja Caves, which were discovered in 1959. Once inhabited by Neanderthals, these caves are notable for their fantastic rock formations, stalagmites and stalactites.
Since the summer of 1960 the silence of centuries has been broken each year with the now world famous Cueva de Nerja International Festival of Music and Dance.
Now in its 51st year, the Festival showcases the arts of flamenco, ballet, contemporary dance, and classical music.
Last night in the largest of these amazing caves, I saw the tango show by the Julio Bocca Argentine Ballet. It was a wonderful performance in a truly extraordinary setting.
