oh wow! now that’s a awesome picture – are those real flowers in pots on the wall?
They sure are!
I was here years ago! Nerja was one of my favourite cities in Spain. I loved the views and great food. Thanks for sharing and bringing back memories.
I wonder how long ago you visited? The town has grown a lot over the years (as have most towns and cities in the world, I guess). What was once a small fishing village along the coast, is now a major tourist destination!
Sorry my computer acted up, so my comment came twice 😉
I remember the scary bus ride along those twisty mountain roads!
I was there in 1990’s. I am sure it has grown a lot since then. How lucky you live so close. One day we will get back… it is beautiful there.

You’re welcome. Well, Nerja is about a 20 minute drive from where I live – along the twisty mountain roads 🙂
Glad you enjoyed visiting Nerja, Diana, it is a pretty little town, that’s for sure.
Truly beautiful! Love the flower pots 🙂
Thanks Madhu – yes, I love them, too!
I have got to go there! Can’t believe I haven’t yet.
OH yes, you must!
Lovely photo, and sunshine!!! Please send some of it to Italy..
Thanks …. OK, I’ll begin wafting!
I visited here several times when I studied abroad in Malaga. I also got to visit the caves!
It’s a great place to visit, isn’t it? Ah yes, the caves – I haven’t been there for a few years – I will no doubt dig out my photos sometime and do a blog post about them. Thanks for the reminder!
Beautiful, Marianne! I hope you’re having a wonderful birthday in Seville. 🙂
Having a wonderful time in Seville – been to the Alcazar today, wandered around Bario Santa Cruz eating tapas and taking photos! Walked miles, across to Triana and along the river, past the Golden Tower. There have been huge parades on today for Corpus Christi – everywhere is packed as it’s a Public Holiday.
Whilst this trip is a birthday treat, it was really my birthday last week – so I’m getting two bites at the cherry this year!
I will do my best to take you to see the Balcon de Europa in Nerja when you come to stay, Cathy.
It sounds like you’re having a marvelous time in Seville, Marianne! I’m sure the tapas are delicious! Lucky you, getting two celebrations for your birthday. All of us should have multiple treats for our multi-year birthdays.
I would love to see the Balcon de Europa, or whatever else you’d like me to see in Nerja or anywhere else. I really can’t wait and I wonder why on earth I gave my notice for the end of June when the semester ended a week ago! Now I’m sitting around and twiddling my thumbs and waiting for the days to pass so I can go on holiday… and meet you! Can’t wait. 🙂
That is one stunning sight Marianne! Great shot hon and thanks for sharing. 🙂 *hugs*
It’s an iconic shot of Nerja – but I always wonder how they water the plant pots!
LOL! Was wondering the same thing but guessed they just wait for the rain or like I do with the neighbour’s plants when he’s away for too long … take the hose, put the long sprayer on it and spray it wet..hahahah
The problem is – if they wait for the rain they will have a long wait as there is usually no rain at all from May until the end of September!
Oh dear me, that is a long wait then. I guess they do what I do with the sprayer then..hehehehe
Great colours as well as curves and lines, super!
It’s pretty much an icon around these parts, Gilly.
Thanks for your comments – always very much appreciated.
Love the planters but must be tricky watering them. 😉
Absolutely – that’s what we were wondering!
Excellent photo! I’m excited to be moving near there in September – Almunecar to be exact!
Yes, I read that you had been given Almunecar for your posting, Mike. It’s a lovely very Spanish town close-by, so I’m sure you will be seeing Nerja very soon!
I thought I’d been there but it doesn’t look familiar. Don’t the planters look beautiful? Lovely shot, Marianne. 🙂
It’s to the left side as you start to walk onto the Balcon de Europa. If you’ve been to Nerja, you’ve surely seen this, Jo.
I love planters like this, but how do they look after them without making the wall dirty? LOL
That’s a very good question, Marianne. I think I’ll loose sleep over that one. 🙂
Beautiful! Good shot 🙂
Much appreciated, thanks Sue.
Wonderful atmosphere, very well captured… 🙂
Thanks, Mr Drake!
