Churches & Chapels

The Nerja region contains various interesting religious buildings and manifestations of sacred art. The majority of the parish churches were built on top of Moorish mosques, as this territory wasn't conquered by the Christians before the end of the 15th century.

Traditional Festivals

There is hardly any better way to get to know the Andalucians than through their many fascinating feast days. The local fiesta is the moment when every town and village strives to put on a splendid show, not only for themselves but also for those who come from afar to admire and enjoy. Over 3000 fiestas are celebrated every year in Andalucia, including fairs, pilgrimages, carnivals, mock battles between Moors and Christians and religious processions, throughout the 800 communities of the region.

In fact, there is scarcely a day in the year without a fiesta, especially in the periods before and after the autumn harvests. Each town has its own patron saint and yearly procession, and some of the Madonnas are revered throughout the entire region.
