... drive short at Niguelas, just off the motorway about half way between Motril and Granada. Several of us did a walk from there last week and I noticed that there was a possibility of leaving the village in the opposite direction from the one we took, and climbing up the hillside to the east, alongside the Rio Torrente.

When you wake up with the sun, this makes for a very long day.) Down into the mountain we go and there are these beautiful caverns all lit up with different colored lights. Kind of a miniature Carlsbad Caverns, except ...
