The enchanting mountain village of Mijas, 428 meters above sea level with a
population of around 7.500. Situated just 8km from Fuengirola and 25 minutes from Malaga Airport.
Mijas has managed to retain much of its old picturesque charm with white houses and green shutters, cobbled, narrow winding streets and fabulous views down to the coast and beyond. Originally a humble pueblo, it is now one of the richest towns in the province.
With a maze of old Moorish streets filled with charming shops; you will find local wares such as hand-made ceramics, leatherwork, jewellery, paintings and the usual souvenirs. There are many bars, restaurants and cafes scattered everywhere around the town. You can take a vibrantly decorated burro taxi (donkey taxi) from the central square if you don’t feel like walking, its a novel way of seeing the town.
There is an unusual square shaped bullring - plaza de toros, which is the only one in Spain.
The panoramic pathway with boasts wonderful views is an enjoyable walk all around the vertical edges of the town.
The church in the village was completed in the early 18th century and covers the ruins of a Moorish castle that stood from the 8th until the late 15th century.
A rocky outcrop built by monks in 1520 is where the grotto of the Virgen de la Peña is. The legend has it that two children, lead by a pigeon, experienced an apparition of the Virgin with Child in her arms and a white dove on her shoulder on that spot. An image of the Virgin was discovered by excavating the rock by the locals. This enchanting grotto is continuously visited by pilgrims from all over the world and always decorated with flowers and offerings.
