Mijas - Historical Center
On the slope of the mountain range is where you will find Mijas village. The old part of the village with its whitewashed streets has a design of Arabic origin serving as an improvised balcony with fantastic views to the Mediterranean. The rectangular bullring; the parish church ¨Concepcion¨; or the sanctuary ¨Virgen de la Peña¨ (XVII century), the village patron, are some of the most emblematic monuments. Also, its ancient Moorish wall, with splendid gardens and balconies that give a magnificent panorama to thetraveller. The donkey taxis are an interesting and original way to tour the village. Two interesting museums can also be found: The Carromato de Mijas (miniature museum) and the Casa Museo de la Villa (historical-ethnographic museum).
