With an investment of 470,000 euros, the works have an execution period of six months

The first impression is what counts for many tourists. Hence, the Local Council has decided to remodel one of the fi rst places that the visitor sees as soon as they arrive in Mijas Village. With an investment of 470,000 euros, a comprehensive reform of the square where the Tourist Office is located will begin next week, operating in an area of 2,500 square metres, as announced on Wednesday 23rd by the councillor responsible for the Department for Infrastructure and Tourism, José Carlos Martín (C’s). The project aims to promote the segment of  ‘typical Mediterranean Village’, improving this first impression that many tourists get when they arrive at the municipality, since the square is located above the Virgen de la Peña car park and close to the bus stops; it also houses the Tourist Office. Along with this aesthetic improvement, the works will include replacing the fl ooring with a non-slip option, improving and optimizing public lighting and relocating existing elements, such as the bronze Mijas donkey or the sundial. According to councillor Martín, “the Culture Delegation has already given the go-ahead to these works that needed this approval as the urban nucleus is a Historic- Artistic Complex”, meaning that the works can begin without any problems.
