Malaga tours and day trips to Mijas and Ojen

The enchanting village of Mijas is situated in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and is surrounded by pine forest.

The village nestles in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level and has a population of 7,500. The nearest main town is the Spanish sea-side resort Fuengirola (8km), Malaga airport is 25 minutes by car. Mijas has managed to retain much of its "white village" charm, with cobbled, narrow winding streets, dazzling whitewashed walls and breathtaking views.

A settlement is known to have existed in Mijas for many centuries. This has been confirmed by archaeological findings near the 'Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion'. This church in the village was completed in the early 18th century and covers the ruins of a Moorish castle that stood from the 8th until the late 15th century. Prior to this the Romans used Mijas, known then as ‘Tamisa’ or ‘Jamisa’ as an important commercial and trading centre as it was close to the road linking Malaga and Cadiz.

Hidden away in a corner of the village, overlooking the wonderful valley leading to the coast, is the hermitage of the ‘Virgen de la Peña’. Built into a rocky outcrop by Mercedarian monks in 1520. Inside is the image of the ‘Virgen de la Peña’, the patron Saint of the village. According to the legend, she appeared on this spot on the 2nd of June 1586 to two young shepherds that had been led there by a pigeon. Subsequently an image of the Virgin was found concealed in a recess in the tower where it had been hidden for 500 years. In 1656 work started on the sanctuary cave, which is nowadays always decorated with flowers and pictures as offerings.

In Mijas Pueblo, the village, we’ll find small typical Andalusian houses, whitewashed and situated on the hillside. Mijas is a village that will provide endless pleasant experiences for our senses, for our sight as well as for our taste, as we’ll enjoy it’s excellent typical gastronomy.
Ojén is just 5 miles north of Marbella and in my opinion one of the most beautiful of the original white villages of Andalucía. It sits within the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park and is a rustic Mediterranean paradise for those who want a break in the south of Spain yet away from the crowds (and Ferraris) of the Costa del Sol.
The town still has the feel of the old Andalucía with its whitewashed walls and fantastic views of the mountains and valleys that lead down to the sea from its altitude of 650ft, with an approximate population of 2000 Ojén has managed to remain unspoiled in spite of it being so close to the Costa del Sol.
