The visit to the old town of Mijas, declared a Historic-Artistic Grouping, allows us to experience the Jardines y el Mirador de la Muralla, which are the remnants of the ancient fortress on which the city was created. In 2013 Mijas opened its Centro de Arte Contemporáneo. A fantastic museum space with works by Pablo Ruiz Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Miró, amongst others. In fact, the museum has the second largest collection of ceramics by Picasso in the world. Another focus of interest is the Plaza de Toros de Mijas, which, like almost everything in the city is like nothing you've seen before. Built in the early twentieth century by a group of neighbours, its gateway maintains the appearance of a typical white house and has an oval shape, something very rare in Spain. To learn more about bullfighting you can also visit the Museo Taurino, which is about five minutes away.Next to the bullring is the Auditorio Municipal, where Mijas' Festival de Teatro Villa takes place in July.
This mountain town, which also faces the sea, offers visitors all the amenities required to enjoy a complete experience, mixing tradition of its past, with spots you can travel to via its famous donkey taxi, with the adaptation to the needs of the many visitors every year. In fact, Mijas is a destination that many fall in love with and choose to live there: the municipality is currently home to nearly 10,000 Brits.
