When talking about important tourist destinations in Malaga, we cannot forget to mention Mijas Costa and Mijas Pueblo, as it’s the favourite destination of a great number of tourists each year.
In Mijas Pueblo, the village, we’ll find small typical Andalusian houses, whitewashed and situated on the hillside. Mijas is a village that will provide endless pleasant experiences for our senses, for our sight as well as for our taste, as we’ll enjoy it’s excellent typical gastronomy.
During high season, tourists from all over the coast visit the village. The further up the mountain you go, you’ll find that the streets make way for flights of stairs. The maze of narrow, cobbled streets dotted with white whitewashed houses contrasted by colorful flower pots and flowers that decorate the balconies, is an image that will remain etched in your mind for a long time.
Some of the most emblematic places in the village are the Ermita de la Virgen de la Peña and the Mirador del Compás from where the views are breathtaking. You can also visit the Plaza de Toros and the Castillo de las Murallas to stroll through the gardens and tour the walls of an ancient castle of the fifteenth century, declared Heritage of Cultural Interest in 1985.
In Mijas, you’ll also find the popular ‘donkey-taxis’ next to the main central square. It all started in the 50s, when workers returned home riding on their donkeys and were surprised that tourists wanted to take pictures with them, and even climb on their donkeys to give them a succulent tip later. What began as a game, gradually became a business, and today there are over 60 burro-taxis in town.
