    When all the sightseeing becomes too much, take time out to sit here in an atmosphere of calm and respect. All visitors talk in hushed tones as if aware that there is an aura here which must not be di...  more »

  • 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!
  • Amazing view of Fuengirola, and very very quiet and relaxed place to look at the horizon and enjoy the view with the sea at the end.
  • A very beautiful small chapel in Mijas Pueblo
  • Beautiful place to visit
