    Jim, lovely little page with brilliant photos of this popular Andalusian gem. Unfortunately I haven't made it to this quaint town yet.

    Jim, your photos of Mijas are just brilliant. We loved this little "white town". We have a small throw rug from here. We did not see Botanical gardens or the Virgin of the Rock. Great work.

    i liked touring this white city with u on VT. actually we have been here in 1996, we stayed in fuengurilla (spell?). nice intro information. o yes, like tiger9090a, i am also against bull fights.

    I am not such a fan of bullfights but the Plaza de Toros looks really nice!
