Hans and I have been to Mijas four times, and probably the next time we go to Spain we will go to Mijas again. That's how much we like it there. Though it's a lot more touristy now, we both enjoy roaming the little narrow streets and taking in the beautiful white houses. They also now have Flamenco Shows on Wednesday afternoon starting at 12:30 p.m. Hans and I have taken the local bus there. It's about an hour and a half ride from Torremolinos as Mijas is just a short distance from the coast. The bus takes you up a long winding and narrow road. Sometimes the driver had to make complete U-turns. I don't know how he does it.
Mijas has a lot to offer. Check in at the Tourist Information Center when you first arrive, so that you don't miss anything. Some of the highlights of Mijas are the following:
El Compas View Point
Shrine of the Virgin of the Rock
Plaza de Toros
Iglesia de Immaculate Conception
Mijas Burro Taxi
Fortress Walls and Gardens%

Address: North of Fuengirola

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
