Mijas…The area is covered by the Town Hall of Mijas and is surrounded with two very different communities. I saw the white village of Mijas high which was up in the mountains I found out that it is famous for the art and craft shops. And the splendid Mijas Costa…a more trendy developed coastal area that covered along a twelve kilometer stretch of small villages and urbanizations on the waterfront… each area has its own divergent uniqueness. You will enjoy Mijas village and spectacular views all around it. The best view I found was from the church on the hill and from the park at the crown of the Mijas village. Mijas Puebl is also known as the Andalucian White Village. As I earlier mentioned about… Mijas Costa…. It has all the facilities such as commerce centers … supermarkets… golf course, and games centers. The visitors enjoy bars and restaurants started by the residents for daily living. It was a summer… an ideal time to visit… I saw that a lot of British and other foreign people living here permanently in summer season. Because of large amount of English speaking people and tourists, it was very easy for me to find English remedial centers since most people there can converse in English. The center point of Mijas Costa is the La Cala de Mijas .I found a very famous street marketplace…el barratillo… as the residents call…open on every Wednesday and Saturday from around early morning till late afternoon… The stalls in that market sell everything from vegetables and fresh fruit to local crafts… clothes… earthenware and ceramic objects… and my personal favorites… beautiful flowers and plants. I had been for the La Cala festival, it was known as the annual fair… which usually starts on the 25th July, that day the village is all decorated for the entire week of festivities… I tried the traditional sherry a wine which is made of white grapes… and tapas a savory dish to eat… and listen to local music and take pleasure in the dancing the entire night. I learned from the guide that on Saturday nights in the sizzling summer months of July and August La Cala turns miraculous. The path becomes a festival of traditional music and Flamenco dance … a dancing style and the entire village celebrates a season of Noches de Luna y Playa called as Nights of Moon and Beach. I saw that a small place like Mijas has managed to preserve much of its white village charisma, with slender snaking streets and astounding overwhelmed walls and incredible views. I saw plenty of small shops with gifts made by local artists. I came across a great number of tapas bars and restaurants on the beach facing the sea. The funniest part was the popular Mijas donkey taxis… transporting en number of visitors all around the village every day. I must say that it is a perfect location for taking an early evening walk before having dinner. When I was walking through the thin paved streets of Andalucian village, I noticed that this is what has attracted the foreigners to settle in Mijas. A lot of celebrities from Hollywood have made their houses in this village to enjoy the amazing climate here. I strongly recommend this place for the people who love to party and relax in the summers. I would give Mijas… 9 out of 10…!!!
