The very pretty and charming village of Maro, with a population of 800, is situated on the coast, three kilometres to the east of Nerja and 55 kilometres to the east of Malaga, in the region of Andalucia called Axarquia. Its whitewashed buildings are a good example of the common domestic architecture in towns and villages on this part of the Mediterranean coastline. The village dates back to the early Christian era, its first structure being the Roman fortification known historically as Detunda, meaning "defence.
It is a genuine pleasure to stroll through the village streets, with flowerpots on balconies and all the charm of a true Andalucian coastal village. One of the most beautiful streets is calle Virgen de las Maravillas, which leads to the Balcon de Maro. Here is the Nuestra Senora de las Maravillas church, dating from the 17th century, and the ruins of the old sugar works, the building of which began in 1585, financed by the then Lord of Maro, Luis de Armengol.
Not far from the village centre, beside the N-340 road going towards Nerja, is another famous monument, the Aguila Aqueduct. This was built between 1879 and 1880, to ensure that water would reach the San Joaquan sugar factory. The Nerja Caves (Cueva de Nerja) are located close to village. Few visitors knew anything about this part of the coast until 1959, when five young boys, out hunting for bats behind Maro discovered a remarkable system of caves and ancient cave paintings. Now the caves attract thousands of visitors a year who come to wonder at this underground cathedral with its strange, melting-wax-like rocky architecture and what is reputed to be the largest natural column in the world.
