  • Cave Chapel is not a rare phenomenon in Spain. But this very cosy and quiet. Near a quiet garden square and souvenir shop. Minus the crowds.

  • This wonderful church is carved into the rock. So unusual, peaceful, busy with tourists.there is a box where you can leave requests to be read out. Free to enter. Lovely little shop selling novelties ...  more »
  • It is a small chapel made in a cave, very original and curious to see, if you go in mijas you should not miss it.

  • Beautiful ancient church carved out of the rock Excellent views over Benalmadina and Fungirolay
  • Stunning old place of worship. Excellent views.
  • Such an amazing place with great positive energy & inspiration
  • Serene and lovely place. Very impressed. Just step outside for wonderful views of Fuengirola.
  • Hermitage of the Virgen de la Peña, the patron saint of Mijas....Mercedarian monks built the chapel in 1520 and inside is a carved wooden image of the virgin allegedly dating back to AD850. It is a delightful little building, although I find it a bit incongruous that, just like a number of ancient churches that I have visited in recent years, it has electronic candles rather than the real thing!
