Favorite thing: Whilst Mijas Pueblo is quaint and is one of the White Villages, per se, it has become extremely popular with tourists ------- to the extent that -while it has all the looks and charm- one does not get a true feel of a sleepy Andalus village when walking through its streets.

Especially since we heard almost only English while walking the steep streets of this mountain pueblo.

The following selection of villages, located throughout the region are some of the best examples of the Andalusian PUEBLOS BLANCOS.

Each one has something different to offer: from mountain top views to fine leather work, Moorish monuments to natural sulphur spas:

Ronda, sits about 60 km's inland and Coin. So if you are looking for the true Andalusian spirit, you might find it there.

Fondest memory: I was there at a full-moon night - walking through Mijas... sucking in the Orange-blossom filled air --- while I had pistachio ice cream!!!! Bliss!
