SINKHOLE SUR­PRISE

The Independent on Saturday - - METRO -

On this day in 1959, ac­cord­ing to Wikipedia, five friends en­tered a sinkhole in the town of Nerja in the prov­ince of Malaga, Spain and, in so do­ing, re­dis­cov­ered the Caves of Nerja.

As one of the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar at­trac­tions, the caves are a se­ries of cav­erns and con­tain paint­ings, which some peo­ple say date back 42 000 years.

Con­certs can be held in the cham­ber, which forms a nat­u­ral am­phithe­atre.
