Mijas Village: Private Tour from Malaga

1. Mijas Village: Private Tour from Malaga

After being picked up from your hotel or the port of Málaga, you will begin your drive to Mijas Village where your tour will begin. After meeting with your official historian tour guide, you will tour for 1.5 hours through Mijas's charismatic streets. Inhabited since ancient times, the small village of Mijas was devoted mainly to agriculture and fisheries through to the explosion of the tourist boom in the 1950s. Mijas offers travelers the contrast between the traditional image of the area and adaptation to current times, all without losing the traditional essence. You can walk around whitewashed corners, courtyards, gardens and shrines, with this village retaining the leisurely pace and charm of the past. You can visit the tiny bull-ring Plaza de Toros, two Mudejar style churches and remains of the old Arab wall, where your can enjoy beautiful gardens and the very interesting sanctuary of the “Virgen de la Peña” patron of the town. The Church of the Immaculate Conception was built by the Muslims in 836, being converted into a Christian church after the conquest, when a Moorish-style tower was added in 1510. From almost any point of the village you can see the white chapel of Calvary, located at a somewhat higher level. At the conclusion of your guided tour, you will have 1 hour's free time, before being returned back to your accommodation in Málaga.
