The cultural wealth of Mijas is immediately evident from the very moment you first set foot outside and into the ephemeral sunlight. Ignoring the views – which is difficult – Mijas' beauty lies in its quaintness; its compact size and hilly location posed challenges for architects many centuries ago, but the result is spectacular. Tiny square houses cling to the landscape like fluff on a sweater, creating a backdrop of scattered, whitewashed walls and red tiled roofs that looks great on a postcard.
Around the central square there are a number of lovely cafés that boast excellent 'menu del días' that, while ostensibly aimed at tourists, are great value and attract locals, expats and tourists alike. The old bullring is one of the most captivating in Andalucia; a reasonable entrance fee standing between curious onlookers and the chance to stand in the ring, view the bull pens and buy plenty of overpriced memorabilia.
Equally diverting is the Mijas Wine Museum, with daily wine tastings and the chance to learn all about Mijas's small but growing wine industry. Once suitably imbibed, a trip to the Casa Museo is an enriching experience where one can learn all about the town's Roman roots, agricultural past and recent boom as one of the Costa del Sol's most authentic destinations. The commercial centre of town has a few boutiques, jewellery stores and restaurants, in addition to banks, grocery stores and pharmacies – even though Fuengirola is so close, Mijas still has everything you are going to need.
Handily for the expat, the Town Hall has its own imaginatively-titled 'Foreigners Department', where non-Spanish speakers can request assistance in all manner of matters, most of which are likely to revolve around the endless form-filling that a new resident to the country must undertake. For those looking to settle here with a family, the nearby St. Anthony's College is for international students, while there are also a couple of British schools in Benalmádena and Torremolinos. Once the paperwork has been filled in, the kids packed off to school, the local doctor met and the food shopping completed, Mijas' lovely gardens will beckon you, where you'll be serenaded by the sound of the birds and the occasional busker while enjoying the warming sunshine and the pervading sense of peace atop this majestic mountainside town.With Fuengirola just a short drive away, memorable nights out on the tiles are easy to come by. But wait – La Cala de Mijas has plenty of late night choice to keep most ages happy, so why head to Fuengirola? For the 'Moonlight Visits' at Fuengirola Zoo, of course. Catch a number of creatures in their natural habitat, give the kids a memorable night out and enjoy a celebratory glass of wine once home.
