Spend a half day in the picturesque village of Mijas. Perched in the mountains above the coast, this charming village is a cluster of whitewashed buildings nesteld into the mountainside. Mijas offers a glimpse of village life with its narrow cobblestoned streets and whitewashed buildings.This is the perfect example of an old Spanish village on the coast that has managed to retain its old world charm.
You will visit the Ermita de la Virgen de la Peña, a chapel made of rock that offers both views of the village and the coast below. Wander through Mijas with its craft shops and take a famous donkey tour through the village.
The Parroquial Church is located in a park with lovely views of the coast, and on a clear day, you can see straight across the Mediterranean to Morocco. The Bullring, located just across from the church, is the only square bullring in Spain.
Those who are fit, can walk up the narrow streets through the neighborhoods to experience true village life. Take time to sit in a cafe and have a drink, or enjoy one of the many restaurants in Mijas.
