Mijas is the white capital of the burro-taxi. The municipality of Mijas in the Costa Del Sol is one of the most beautiful white villages in Andalucía, a village nestled in the mountains which maintains the typical charm of the white Andalusian Villages. 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 village consists of three urban centers which are:
- Mijas Pueblo, located at the foot of the homonymous Sierra at 430 meters above sea level.
- Las Lagunas, which is the modern part of the town along Fuengirola.
- La Cala, located on the seafront with more than 12 km of coastline. There the town offers a great number of beaches for all tastes.
However, Mijas village remains the major focus of attraction for national and international tourists because of its typically Andalusian white village beauty and its famous donkeys.
