52nd Annual Nerja Caves Music Festival


This week, the 52nd annual Festival of Music and Dance (Festival de Música y Danza) takes place at the Nerja Caves (Cuevas de Nerja).

If you haven´t visited the Caves, then watch this fantastic YouTube video which will really set the stage for you.

Over the years, the Festival which is one of the most important cultural events of the year in Málaga province, has attracted international artists and musicians from all over the world including Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Montserrat Caballé, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and José Carreras.

The natural amphitheatre is a memorable venue for the concerts, with Queen Sofia of Spain, on a couple of occasions, arriving unannounced by helicopter to attend one of  the performances in the la Sala de las Cascadas, which has one of the best acoustic chambers in the world – carved out of the rock by nature herself.
