Travel Tips for Mijas

Not the "REAL" andalusian impression ...

by iris2002

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. 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!

Typically Spanish

by Geoff_Wright

Mijas is a typical Spanish mountain town, and this view with the high Sierra in the distance, gives the visitor a taste of what to expect. Enlarge this picture and you will see that the trees on the mountain have been subjected to a devastating fire. Rumour has it that it was caused deliberately by people wishing to obtain planning permission!

More regional cuisine

by karenincalifornia about Meson El Olivar

We stopped here for lunch on the day we were just hanging around town and had a pleasant lunch out on the terrace. This restaurant specializes in local cuisine, like fish and pork chops. I ordered an ensalata mixto which was just so-so. Frankly, the ensalata mixtos in Andalucia are not all that exciting and they come with tuna fish. Sometimes the tuna seems fresh enough, sometimes it clearly came from a can. I would scrape it off and eat everything else. I'd suggest avoiding the ensalada mixto at any restaurant. The only reason I ordered it in the first place was due to my desperation to find something that was remotely close to vegetarian in Spain.

The rest of my family enjoyed whatever it was that they ordered. The restaurant is good - just don't order the ensalada mixto.

My husband and I split a half litre of sangria, which was quite tasty. Someone on VT told me that only tourists drink sangria in Spain, so being tourists, we had to do the touristy thing. After downing the sangria, I was ready to go buy a Mijas key ring personalized with my name in Spanish.

Donkeys and horse carriages

by yumyum

Rather than putting this tip under transportation, I prefer it in the "things to do" category.

In Mijas you may hire a donkey for a ride for Euro 10.00 or a donkey taxi for Euro 15.00. These you find in front of the tourist office. I couldn't figure out what exactly costs Euro 2.00. This may be when you just sit on a donkey an have your photo taken?!

On the main square a little bit further from the tourist office towards the souvenir shops you will find the parking for the horse drawn carriages (picture no. 3). I don't know how much that costs.

The Chapel In The Rock

by keeweechic

The cave is beside the old castle walls almost hidden amongst gardens. Inside the rock is a chapel which the priest built and dedicated to the Virgin de la Pena, Patron Saint of Mijas. Pena means cliff. There is also a room on the side where the ceremonial outfits of the Virgin are kept. When the old priest died, he was buried in the chapel.
