Mijas Pueblo

Despite the fact that Mijas caters so obviously for the tourist it has retained its charm of a little village. The setting is lovely at 428meters of altitude which offers magnificent views of the pine clad mountains and the sea. Its proximity to the coast, about 20 minutes drive, makes it an ideal excursion for the day.

Just beyond the Donkeys  parking is a cave which serves as a shrine to the villages patroness "La virgin de la peña" (shrine of the virgin of the rock).Apparently the virgin Mary appearded to a daughter of the family who once lived here. To commemorate the event, a tiny image of the virgin is kept here, thought to date back to AD850.

There is also a thriving arts and crafts movement in Mijas, particularly linen and wicker items, and the locally made bread and honey are definitely worth trying.

The main attraction in Mijas Pueblo is that you can enjoy a stroll with “the Donkeys Taxis”
