Mijas Pueblo – A hidden gem in the mountains

The enchanting village of Mijas Pueblo is one of the great treasures of the Costa del Sol. Nestling in the mountainside only seven kilometres from the coast, it is a traditional Andalusian ‘white village’ with all the typical charm and appeal one would hope for. The bright, whitewashed houses are dazzling in the brilliant sunshine and the village sits like a pearl surrounded by the pine forest of the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range. The town has retained all of its authentic appeal – from the old stone walls to the narrow, cobbled streets, the old bullring and the unadulterated architecture of the little white village houses. Because of its altitude and its prominent position, Mijas Pueblo boasts some of the most splendid views in the region, and it is no surprise that artists and writers have been flocking to the village and made it their home.
