Introduction

Malaga is the major coastal city of Andalucia and is a genuine and typical Andaluz city with a gritty individualism untouched by tourism and, to a large extent, the passage of time.

This illustrious past has left its imprint on the historic centre, particularly around La Alcazaba, a fortress which dates back to 1065 and is now a fascinating archaeological museum. Also worth a visit is the nearby castle which was rebuilt by the Moors and is today a traditional parador (state hotel) with superb panoramic views. Pablo Picasso is the city´s famous son and there are several galleries showing his work, including the 16th century Museum of Fine Arts, adjacent to the Cathedral. His birthplace in Plaza Merced is today an archive of his life and works and open to the public.


We will visit Mijas, a typical whitewashed village of the Costa del Sol and the white capital of the burro-taxi. The municipality of Mijas in the Costa del Sol is one of the most beautiful villages in Andalucía, a village nestled in the mountains keeping the typical charm of the white Andalusian villages.

The beautiful picture of endless white houses climbing up the slopes of the Sierra de Mijas, in contrast to the deep green of the pines, offers one of the most recognizable and picturesque images of Andalucía.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.Located in what was once the center of Mijas, we find the beautiful Church of the Immaculate Conception. Constructed in the XVI century on the ruins of an ancient Arab mosque of its Moorish tower he took advantage as belfry. The church has three separated by arches supported on Tuscan columns ships, and two side chapels under which there crypts with graves. It preserves wonderful frescoes inside eight on the Apostles of the Baroque era.

Burro taxi in Mijas started 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 that charge 15 € per ride.


Ronda is one of Andalucia´s loveliest towns, steeped in history. It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of Malaga Province, and is famous through Spain for the plunging river gorge which divides the medieval from the 18th century parts of the town. Built astride a huge gash in the mountains carved out by the Río Guadalevín, Ronda is a brawny town with a dramatic history littered with outlaws, bandits, guerrilla warriors and rebels. Its spectacular location atop El Tajo gorge and its status as the largest of Andalucía’s white towns have made it hugely popular with tourists – particularly notable when you consider its relatively modest size. Modern bullfighting was practically invented here in the late 18th century, and the town’s fame was spread further by its close association with American Europhiles Ernest Hemingway (a lover of bullfighting) and Orson Welles (whose ashes are buried in the town).
