    Before you enter the town of Ojén you reach a view-platform with breathtaking views of the village Ojén, the mountains, Marbella and the ocean. It is must to stop there and enjoy this view before you enter the village.

    On our walk through the village we came across this small cave - Cueva de las Campanas. It is lovely with lights inside and a bench to sit on :)

    Outside the cave there were trees with pomegranates, very lovely.

    The white village in the mountains.

    It is wonderful walking through the village of Ojén. Being situated in a hill the walk is a bit steep at times. This village is so typical of Spain, white houses, colourful flowers everywhere. But there was something so special about Ojén, it was so peaceful that I almost felt like we were intruding ;) Only on the main square did I see some live. There was a beautiful fountain and the parish church Parroquia de la Encarnación.
