Discover the white city of Mijas
One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol is the beautiful little village of Mijas, which nestles in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level. This quaint town exemplifies the region’s charm in both styles and feel. When you wander through the narrow cobbled streets of this Andalucian village, you can understand what has attracted foreigners to settle here over the years. Many artists and writers have made it their home, enjoying the benefits of an excellent all-year-round climate. You can find their handmade pottery, colourful paintings and prints made at the craft shops in the city centre. In the village you can visit historical monuments, such as the sanctuary of la Virgen de la Peña; The Plaza de Toros, the bullring that is strangely an oval construction peculiar shape which cannot be found anywhere else; Mijas Museum of Miniatures created by travel adventurer and hypnotist, Professor Max, this museum showcase over 360 pieces collected during his travels around the world.
Beautifully kept gardens are a delight to visit at the top of the village, where there are still some of the fortress walls of the ancient village. Be sure to take some time to check out the view on a clear day – weather permitting, you’ll be able to spot the distant coast of Africa over the strait of Gibraltar. This undeniably Andalusian ambience can be seen throughout this town, making it clear why so many creative residents are inspired by the view, the architecture and the overall charm of this traditional village.
