Balcon of Europe Nerja a must visit

The balcon of Europe

The Balcon of Europe Nerja a gorgeous balcony looking over the Mediterranean sea. Named the Balcón de Europa by King alfonso XII. A perfect spot for the for taking a photo of the sea with the  statue of the late king Alfonso XII in the background . It was actually King alfonso XII who actually named this the balcony of Europe. This was after the big earthquake that hit Nerja in 1884. Prior to this it was called “Paseo de la Batería” . The king on this visit “exclaimed this is the Balcón de Europa” and so the Balcon of Europe Nerja took its name.
