Situated in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and surrounded by pine forest, Mijas, a town located in the Province of Málaga, in the autonomous community of Andalusia (Andalucía), on the South-Eastern coast of Spain, has managed to retain much of its "white village" charm, with narrow winding streets, dazzling whitewashed walls and breathtaking views.
The beautiful picture of endless white houses climbing up the slopes of the Sierra de Mijas, in contrast to the deep green of the pines, offers one of the most recognizable and picturesque images of Andalucía.
The maze of narrow, cobbled streets dotted with white whitewashed houses contrasted by colorful flower pots and flowers that decorate the balconies, is an image that will remain etched in your mind for a long time.
The surrounding mountainous environment has well preserved some archaeological sites, testimony to the town’s rich prehistoric past. at Mijas, Andalucia, Spain
