Saint Sebastian Church Tips (6)

San Sebastian Church

This picturesque church built in 1674 almost seamlessly blends in with Mijas. Like Mijas itself, what it lacks in size it makes up for in charm and beauty. Inside is a small chapel as pleasing as the outside.

San Sebastian

In the centre of the village is the pretty white church of San Sebastian, its present appearance dating from its restoration in the second half of the 17th century. This is a typical Mudejar church, "Mudejar" being a term that refers to Spanish architecture of the 13th to the 16th century, which combines Moorish and Gothic styles.

Inside, this small church has a peaceful atmosphere emphasised by the rather plain white walls. These contrast with the ornate altar and cupola above it, which is decorated with rococo plaster. Behind the altar we saw a large statue of Christ carrying the cross. Stacy (Beach_dog) explained that it is traditional for Spanish churches to have a different statue for each day of Holy Week, and these are paraded through the town each evening during that week.

The San Sebastián church.

There are several churches in Mijas and I visited 3 of them. San Sebastián church is a small church in the middle of the village. It was finished at the end of the 17th century. In 1674 the church was rebuilt from ruins thanks to charity.

The church stands by San Sebastián street which is said to be the one of the most picturesque and photographed streets of the coast.

The San Sebastián church is number 12 on the map.

San Sebastian

This is the other church of Mijas which is another very typical white Andalucian church, with its one bell.

It was built at the end of the XVII century although it has been refurbished several times since.

It can be found in Plaza de la Libertad in amongst the cobbled streets of the village. You will be sure to stumble across it on your ramblings as the main tourist centre is fairly small. The rest of the village is made up of houses.
