Mijas group tour


Visit this beautiful and charming village with a typical arab urban layout of tight streets and well preserved Andalusian architecture: white houses, barred windows and colorful pots with flowers. Your local guide will show you every corner of this town as you learn more about its people and its history on this 1.5 hrs tour.

When you wander through the narrow cobbled streets of this Andalucian village, you can understand what has attracted foreigners over the years. Many artists and writers have made it their home, enjoying the benefits of an excellent all year round climate, without being part of the busier, more commercial coastal towns just 7 kilometres down the mountain side. Despite its huge popularity with tourists, Mijas Pueblo has somehow managed to retain much of its traditional Andalucian way of life, the locals displaying their unabashed passion for all things festive and an unmistakable relaxed outlook.
