Nerja is a tourist destination that belongs to the Costa del Sol. Nerja has an official population of over 22,000, with almost one third of foreign residents, mainly British. It has a long proven history on the paintings found in the famous Nerja Caves, discovered in 1959. Under the Muslim kingdom, the name was Narixa, meaning "abundant supply" and that is the source of the current name. Nerja has a mild climate throughout the year, which allows the cultivation of subtropical fruits such as custard apple or avocado. The famous television series Summer Blue was recorded in Nerja during 1979 and 1980. They call Nerja ‘The Balcony of Europe’.
