Nerja off the map!

Nerja Map

NERJA Town Hall has demanded that the Junta pulp a tourist guide for the province that surprisingly omits the town.

The guide highlights the nearby towns of Torrox, Frigiliana, Velez-Malaga and Almuñécar which is in the next door province of Granada. It does mention the Nerja caves, but makes no mention of either Nerja and the famous Balcon de Europa.

The publication is being handed out at the annual tourist fair Fitur in Madrid this week.

Bernardo Pozuelo, Nerja’s Tourism Councillor has written to the Junta demanding that the brochures are withdrawn.

He said “It not only harms Nerja but also the image of the guide as well.”

Pozuelo, a member of the Partido Popular, also questioned if the omission of Nerja was due to the socialist Junta making a political point.

He demanded that the guides be pulled off the stands at Fitur.

  1. Perhaps the Junta de Andalucia were so busy issuing orders to demolish expat’s houses, they forgot. On the other hand, they probably left it off because Nerja is PP and not communist enough for them.
