Mijas is a typical Andalucian village, perched high above Fuengirola and Mijas Costa with spectacular views of the coast and surrounding wooded mountains. A web of narrow cobbled streets, terraces overflowing with geraniums, red tile roofs, make Mijas.

Since Mijas was first discovered in the 60's, close to sixty nationalities have made the pueblo their home and the impact can be agreeably appreciated via the international cuisine, cosmopolitan clubs and associations and, in general, the influence of foreign culture and the arts.
Mijas has still managed to retain some of its quaint traditions, one of the most unusual being the donkey taxis, which line at the central plaza.
In January, Mijas holds their festival of San Anton, which is celebrated with a romeria (open air party) at the holy hermitage and reached in carriages and on carts, piled high with flowers and food.
One of the most interesting buildings in Mijas is the hermitage of El Puerto, which can be seen, just about everywhere in the village, appropriately enough, halfway up a mountain.
