Nerja's Ermita de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias celebrated its 300th birthday last week.

The building was officially blessed on 20 January 1720 and since 1730 it has been home to a series of valuable religious paintings.

Last Sunday the town's councillor for Culture, Gema Laguna, announced a series of events to mark the anniversary, starting with a service in honour of Our Lady (Nuestra Señora).

The Centro Cultural Villa de Nerja will host a photographic exhibition of the history of the chapel from 18 March.
