Mijas, a tourist town at the foot of the hills of the same name, possesses typically Andalusian houses. Its traditional status as a mountain village has been combined harmoniously with a major tourist complex located in the coastal enclave of La Cala, where there are 12 kilometres of beaches.
The whitewashed streets of historic quarter, Arab in layout and nestling in the mountain landscape, houses some buildings of interest, among them some churches and hermitages. The surrounding area, meanwhile, preserves some archaeological sites, testimony to the town's rich prehistoric past. Not forgetting other attractions Mijas offers, such as its gastronomy, inherited from Andalusia's rich culinary tradition and its deep-rooted custom of fairs and festivals.
