The aim is to prevent damage to the cave paintings and the rock surface they are drawn on. Cave paintings are very fragile and sensitive to changes in the natural environment. They cannot be illuminated, to prevent an increase in the rock’s temperature and the development of photosynthetic microorganisms (green sickness), as both processes can lead to the deterioration of the pigments and the wall itself. Furthermore, the presence of people near the panels of cave art would alter the microclimate of their surroundings. Human presence increases the temperature, humidity, and concentration of carbon dioxide in the air, parameters that in turn affect the processes of precipitation-dissolution of the rock support and the processes of evaporation-condensation of water, all of which are key in the conservation of the paintings and supports. People also introduce organic elements into the cave interior (hair, skin cells…), which serve as “food” for fungi, the number one enemy of caves with cave art. Therefore, it is important to keep people away from the cave paintings.

We have an obligation to protect and conserve the art of our prehistoric ancestors. Can we count on your cooperation?

In accordance with the measures requested by the Nerja Cave Research Institute for the proper conservation of the cave, pets are not allowed inside, for hygiene reasons, not even in carriers, except for guide dogs.
