Mijas Pueblo

mijas One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol is the beautiful little village of Mijas, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level; a typical Andalusian Pueblo Blanco with narrow cobbled streets and its own small bullring which is open to visitors during the day with a small bullfighting museum attached. Many artists and writers have made it their home, enjoying the benefits of an excellent all year round climate, without being part of the busier, more commercial coastal towns just 7 kilometers down the mountain side. Despite its huge popularity with tourists, Mijas Pueblo has somehow managed to retain much of its traditional Andalusian way of life,the locals displaying their unabashed passion for all things festive and an unmistakable relaxed ‘mañana’ outlook on anything that can be put off for another day. The craft shops have some wonderful hand made pottery and often affordable paintings and prints by acclaimed local artists
