“Nice day out”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Visited the bull ring as part of a day visit to Mijas.Very interesting building but did not see an actual bullfight.
The whole village is lovely with panoramic views and whitewashed houses.Had excellent tapas in a nice little bar.Can't recall the name but most places looked good for food.Well worth a visit to Mijas and the bullring.

“Stunningly Beautiful!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Mijas is easily one of the nicest places I've visited. The all round general impression of this small, picturesque village in the mountains is flawless!! Incredible views in an almost 'time stood still' feel gives the visitor time to embrace the beauty. With old Spanish-type gypsies who offer donkey/horse and cart rides around the main streets adding to the senses.
The Plaza de Toros still being used on weekends to entertain the locals and visitors it'll definitely be something to experience although I didn't have the chance.
Recommend starving yourself the day before so you can really enjoy the pleasures of the food the cafes and restaurants have to offer.
These are the types of places Spain should be known for and not the over-populated Sun, Sea and Sand the tourists are driven to!

**** CAN'T RECOMMEND ENOUGH!! ****

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Apart from the famous bull ring which is an impressive building ( I'm against bull fighting) the town is well worth a visit, with its many unique shops.

“A square ring”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Reputedly the only square bullring in Spain (it's not actually!) It sits in a delightful location at the top of the village close to the church and an excellent "mirador" from which one can survey the sprawling coastline. It is not large, but contains and interesting museum.
