The story behind Balcon de Europa

Balcon de Europa, or “Balcony of Europe,” has a fascinating history stretching back to the 9th century. Originally an outdoor terrace for an Arab castle, this site was later destroyed by the Catholic monarchs in the 15th century. In the 19th century, it was remodeled and renamed “Balcon de Europa” by King Alfonso XII, who visited Nerja.

The views stretch as far as the eye can see and you can see the surrounding mountains and beaches. This is the ideal place to enjoy a beautiful sunset or a quiet morning overlooking the sea.
