Mijas is a town and municipality in the province of Málaga, in Andalusia, southern Spain. It is a typically Andalusian white-washed village located at a mountain side about 450 m above mean sea level, in the heart of the Costa del Sol region. There are some local history museums and many souvenir shops, Mijas also has seven golf courses (four more are under construction) including La Cala Resort, the biggest golf resort in Spain.

Picturesque coaches...
...Or donkey taxi!
A 17th Century cave-cum-shrine which was excavated by a Carmelite monk between 1656 and 1682, on the side of the Epistolary, a sacristy made of irregular stonework has been adde. The Eastern front, also made in a similar manner and for the same purpose, has a doorway with a round arch and a small belfry gable

In a small irregular niche excavated at the head of the hermitage you´ll find the Virgen de la Peña, patron of Mijas

  1. Urocza i piękna miejscowość.Z jedne strony morze, z drugiej góry. To jest to, co ja kocham. Uwielbiam domy pomalowane na biało.Pozdrawiam. *** La ciudad encantadora y hermosa. Por un lado el mar, en las otras montañas. Esto es lo que me gusta. Me encantan las casas pintadas de blanco. Tuyo.

  2. Breathtaking captures of such a beautiful place, Nick! I also lived in Spain a number of years ago and it is wonderful to revisit through your photos!


  3. Golf courses I'm not excited about but what a quaint town square. And the hotel you stayed at looks so charming.

  4. When I read the title I was hoping to see some donkeys. :-) Great shots.

  5. All these photos are simply superb!

  6. It's a lovely Town, and the free Flamenco is a good idea.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
