Information

A series of Martello towers situated on the cliff tops along the shores around Nerja formed part of a larger network of coastal defences in the Province of Málaga. These were built in the years following the Morisco rebellion of Alpujarras in 1567 — the final Islamic battle in Spain — when there was the danger of pirate attacks from North Africa. The remains of the tower at the Río de la Miel stand precariously on the low cliff between the secluded beaches Playa del Molino de Papel (named after the nearby former Paper Mill) and the Playa de las Alberquillas, 5.5 km east of Nerja.

  1. Really like these, the first is my favourite as I cant see the edge but I know it is there somewhere and it makes me feel uneasy . I like the blue you have managed to get in the sky and that contrasts against the rest of the scene.
