Mijas Pueblo -
Mijas is located in
the Spanish province of Malaga on the Costa del Sol in Andalucia. The town
consists of two separate areas - Mijas Pueblo - a traditional Spanish white
village - and Mijas Costa - a modern coastal beach resort. Mijas Costa
is typical of all the Costa del Sol beach resorts with restaurants and
bars near the beach.
Pueblo is a typical Andaluz village of whitewashed buildings, with winding
narrow streets, and the proverbial geranium strewn balconies, perched high
on the mountainside with spectacular views to the Mediterranean below and
a scenic backdrop of mountains and endless pine forests. On entering the
village, it is possible to see the ancient spring, which provides natural
mineral water. Stroll the narrow, cobbled streets and breathe in the atmosphere
- stop for a coffee or a glass of wine along the way and sit and watch
the world go by.. then take a trip around the village in the famous donkey-drawn
taxis of Mijas.
The village is a fascinating
place to visit. Many bars and restaurants, attractive shops, and astounding
views all around, plus the following attractions:
Hermitage of the Virgen de
Visit the Hermitage of the Virgen
de la Peña, which dates back to 1520. Built by Mercedarian monks,
the inside of the hermitage is decorated with the image of the patron saint
that gave this place its name. Legends tell that the Virgen de la Peña
appeared right on this spot, in front of two shepherds which is why the
heritage was built here and not elsewhere.
Gardens and La Muralla
Just below the heritage is a
large and attractive botanical garden (plants are labelled with their names
for information). The gardens are integrated with the old defensive walls
of the town (la Muralla). There is also a rock gorge within the gardens,
which makes an interesting rock climbing location for climbers to practice
their skills, and lovely waterfalls and fish ponds.
Other attractions in Mijas
Pueblo are as follows:
The Casa Museo is a fully restored
museum displaying old farming tools and equipment. Located on the Plaza
de la Libertad, the museum has a typical Andalusian style patio, and on
the top floor a range of sculptures, paintings and traditional crafts can
de Toros, Mijas
In the same area as La Muralla
is the Plaza de Toros, or bull fighting ring. Built in the traditional
manner in 1900 the bull ring though small offers exciting bullfights on
a regular basis. The views from the seating area in the bull ring are astounding.
Close by you can visit the Siete Caños square, the Casa de la Cultura
and other other nearby points of interest.
Carromato de Max Miniatures
The Carromato de Max is a fascinating
and special museum, located only a few metres from the main square and
the town hall of Mijas Pueblo. It is a museum of miniatures which includes
fascinating objects such as a picture of Abraham Lincoln painted on a pin-head
or a prayer written on the borders of a visiting card.
The entire Mijas area is
a golfer's paradise with year-round sun and numerous championship golf
courses within easy reach. Just inland from Mijas Costa you'll find La
Cala North and South golf courses and the David Leadbetter Golf Academy.
Also within easy driving distance are the famous courses of Valderrama,
Torrequebrada, Alhaurin La Grande and Monte Mayor.
Well worth a visit on your
trip to Spain - make a note to visit Mijas.
