This is the perfect place to spend a few hours, in the hillside village of beautiful Mijas. If you travel by car it is recommended you park in the municipal multi-story car park behind the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) – when approaching from Fuengirola or Benalmádena turn into the village by the roundabout and filling station at the top of the hill. When the road forks take the left fork along Avenida de Mejico and follow the parking signs. Turn left down the very steep Calle del Muro; bear left and you’ll see the multi-story car park. Exit the car park by the top floor and take your parking ticket with you.You exit the car park into the main square in Mijas and here you can join all those who arrived by bus, as the terminus is just off the same square..
