Nerja, the popular holiday resort on the eastern stretch of the Costa del Sol, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its 'Carnaval' (carnival) this year. As such the town hall has prepared a special programme for this year’s event which is taking place from 8 to 11 February.

The official opening ceremony will take place at Nerja’s cultural centre on Calle Granada at 8pm where those attending can expect “many surprises” according to the town’s councillor for festivals, Elena Gálvez.
