ABOUT THE AREA
if you think the Costa del Sol is soulless, you clearly haven’t been to Malaga. Loaded with history and brimming with a youthful vigour that proudly acknowledges its multi-layered past, the city that gave the world Picasso has transformed itself in spectacular fashion, with half a dozen new art galleries, a radically rethought port area and a nascent art district called Soho. Not that Malaga was ever lacking in energy: the Spanish-to-the-core bar scene could put bags under the eyes of an insomniac, while the food culture encompasses both Michelin stars and tastefully tatty fish shacks.
Come here for tapas washed down with sweet local wine and stay in a creative boutique hotel sandwiched between a Roman amphitheatre, a Moorish fortress and the polychromatic Pompidou Centre, while you reflect on how eloquently Malaga has reinvented itself for the 21st century. Look out, Seville.
The very pretty and charming village of Maro, with a population of 800, is situated on the coast, 3 kilometres to the east of Nerja and 53 kilometres to the east of Malaga, in the region of Andalucia called Axarquia.
The Nerja Caves are located close to Maro. Few visitors knew anything about this part of the coast until 1959, when five young boys, out hunting for bats behind Maro discovered a remarkable system of caves and ancient cave paintings. Now the caves attract visitors every day who come to wonder at this underground cathedral with its strange, melting-wax rocky architecture and what is reputed to be the largest natural column in the world.
it is a genuine pleasure to stroll through the village streets, with flowerpots on balconies and all the charm of a true Andalucian coastal village. One of the most beautiful streets is Calle Maravillas, where one can look out over the sea from the vantage points. There are also wonderful views from here of the surrounding countryside. Beside the Balcon de Maro, one finds the iglesia de Nuestra Senora de las Maravillas, dating from the 17th century.
