Balcón de Europa

The Balcón de Europa is a gorgeous balcony from where you can look over the Mediterranean sea. It’s one of the most popular places in Andalucía, a spot for the perfect photo of the sea, or a photo with the statue of the late king Alfonso XII who actually named this balcony after the big earthquake that hit Nerja in 1884. Back in those days here stood a watch out fort called “Paseo de la Batería” and the king shouted,fa “this is the Balcón de Europa”.
