The village is very pretty with lots of flower pots in the lovely streets. the streets are clean. The main plazza espania has a great atmosphere, a great range of restaurants to pick from.

Loved this wee place. So quaint & picturesque, right up the mountain. Wee cobbled streets with white washed shops/restaurants/bars & stalls. Horse & donkey carriages (& so so clean, with poop scoop, leather catcher, attached to their back ends).. Lovely shrine to our Lady of Mijas. Highly recommend. Tip; stunning views, so don't forget your camera..

One of the most beautiful pueblos I've been to on Mijas Costa. Just stroll around and look at the houses and gardens. So beautiful! Had a great tapas tasting menu at Plaza Espana.

We have been visiting the Pueblo on and off for many years. It's easy to get to by Public Transport, on a bus route to Mijas Village. Also well worth a visit. Combine the two in a one day trip. The village centre hasn't changed very much, however development has taken place all around. The central Plaza de Espana with... More
