Welcome to Nerjanow, your website for
Nerja.The Balcon de Europa at the heart of Nerja The name Nerja comes from the moorish word for the village “Narixa” which means abundance of water, but the abundance is not through rain!
Nerja has 300 days of sunshine which makes it a great all year round destination. Nerja is still nearer to the real Spain, and just a few minutes walk from the Town centre and you can still occasionally see Oxen pulling a plough, and just a few more minutes drive away is some of the most magnificent scenery to be seen anywhere.  Although Nerja has succumbed to tourism it has managed to keep a lot of it’s character, particularly the old part of town with narrow (some still cobbled) streets and loads of great Tapas Bars.  Nerja is less than two hours drive from the Sierra Nevada (Europe’s most Southerly Ski resort) so you can be on the beach for the morning, and skiing in the afternoon!

Yesterday was the last day of the 3 cultures festival in Frigiliana, The event is held every year at the end of August to celebrate Frigiliana’s diverse history of Moors, Jews and Christians.
We got the bus there in the evening for a wander round to sample the local wine and tapas. For the serous tapas fans there was a tapas route to enjoy and if you completed the route you got a free t-shirt, but the market area with food stalls near the main car park seemed to be the most popular area. There seemed to be food of just about every description and nationality.
There were street entertainers, jugglers, musicians and even belly dancers. The night was brought a close on the main stage by a seven piece band who wowed the crowd with a mix of Spanish and north African music. A fabulous end to 4 days of fiesta!

Tomorrow night is Fiesta Blanca in Nerja and this year has returned to Salon beach (you get down there following the alley near the church on the Balcon to Cochran’s terrace) the idea is to dress all in white and in previous years children who turned up got a free non alcoholic cocktail.
The party starts at 10ish and goes on into the early hours with entertainment provided by various guest DJs, Tomé, Koty Jimenez Xarly Brown, Mr. Meerlo, Daniel Moreno and Guille. Also guest saxophonist Daniel Vikario. This year there will also be go-go dancers and stilt walkers, mocktails (non alcohol)  gifts and a chance to win a holiday.

4th August.

In May this year I changed ADSL provider from Movistar to Vodafone because of a package on offer that included a smart phone for just slightly more than I was paying Movistar just for ADSL. Even though stories abound about possible problems the changeover was smooth until June when Movistar took 31.46 from my bank account. Here we go I thought, but no a phone call to Movistar and I was asked to return the router to any Movistar shop, get a reference number and call them back which I did and hey presto my account will be credited with the amount withdrawn:)

The concert performed on the Balcon de Europa last night by the town’s junior band was most excellent, a great selection of music. These young talented musicians deserve the massive applause they got at the end of the evening. Well done!
