If you're planning a trip around the Costa del Sol, consider making a stop in Mijas Pueblo, a charming village of white houses and seaside views on the Mediterranean coastline. Mijas is a popular holiday destination for tourists and Spaniards alike, with plenty of golf courses and resorts to keep people entertained. It's an easy one-hour bus journey from Malaga, which has the nearest international airport.
Back in the 50s and 60s, Mijas was a magnet for bohemians and artists. Museums and galleries like the CAC Mijas (Centro de Arte Contemporaneo) and the Mijas wagon - an amazing museum housing miniature artworks within a wooden wagon - help keep the town's artistic spirit alive today.
Mijas town is divided in two by the main square, Plaza Virgen de la Peña. Explore the village on foot or hire a donkey carriage to take you around the cobbled streets.
