Why Nerja is the best city to live and study Spanish in Spain

Nerja is a fishing town in Malaga that borders Granada's province, where the mouth of three rivers meet: the dry river, the honey river, and the Chillar River, which enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year.

The municipality of Nerja has six towers (there were used as defence towers in the past) and is located in the coastal area of Costa del Sol.

The Macaca, Maro or Calaturcos, Pino, and Caleta towers are in good conservation. In contrast, the tower of Torrecilla de Nerja, the Rio de la Miel, are practically destroyed.

It is an ideal gateway to Europe for a vacation, sightseeing, and even diving most of the year to learn the Mediterranean's secrets.
