Tourist train in Nerja
N.B. This blog is also available in Finnish and you’ll find it here
Yesterday, we were having some family time, and decided to try the cute blue tourist train in Nerja, which we had seen many times passing us. It took almost one year for us to do that, but for my defence I have to say that, it was out of use for several months 😉 . Anyway, it was a very fun ride and easy way to get to know Nerja, especially if you are a first-timer.
At winter time Train departs from Plaza Cavana (calle Diputación) between 11:00 and 14:30. During the summer time the schedule is a little bit longer from 10:00 to 18:00. There’s also other train stop at Calle de la Cruz if someone wants to hop in from there. The tickets were 4€/ adults and 2€ /kids, which I think isn’t that much of a trip around the town. The tour is guided in three languages (Spanish, English and German), so you don’t miss any the sights or monuments.
The train is a road going train which travels around the town much like a mini bus or any normal car. I was told that the trip will take something around 30 to 45 minutes. The main sights and monuments during the route were Museo de Nerja, Ermita de las Angustias, Casco histórico, Inglesia se San Miguel, Playa Carabeo, Balcón de Europa, Fuente de Europa and Barco de Chanquete. The thing that surprised me, was that it didn’t go to the Burriana beach, which I think is an essential part of Nerja. Well, for me it’s quite familiar, but for first-timers it would be nice to see it.
All in all, the 30-minute train trip was fun and especially our junior enjoyed it a lot. Plus he got some Crayons and activity book from the driver, which made him feel very special 😉 . I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see more than just Balcon de Europa while visiting Nerja!
I hope you found this post interesting and/or useful. 🙂
