On a damp and dreary morning, we drove the short distance from our hotel to the nearby town of Nerja.
Friends had mentioned that the "Balcon de Europa" was a must to see so we parked the car and headed in the general direction.
Pictured right is the Paseo Balcon de Europa, the end of which juts out into the sea.

Perhaps because of the weather, the area wasn't too busy which gave us a great opportunity to take in the great views.

Standing with a statue of King Alfonso XII who was allegedly responsible for naming the Balcon.

We saw this kindly lady feeding the stray cats on the Paseo.

The Ayuntamiento and also location of the tourist office.

The 17th century El Salvador Church near to the Balcon.

The weather started to brighten up so we continued our wanderings around the streets.
Even at this time of year there were quite a few tourists about.

Lots of shops and bars open.

As the sun came out and the temperature rose, so more visitors came to the see the magnificent views.

After a couple of hours, we headed back to our hotel, passing through this archway into the Plaza de la Constitución.
