Mijas Pueblo (in the mountains)

This is a very pleasant village with nice shops and well-known for its leather goods. Do not forget to negotiate the price!

You will find a bullring at the Plaza de Toros in the center of the village, . It goes back to 1900. Here are still bullfights taken place during the summer and on Sunday from 18:30h. The arena is unique because of its peculiar shape that is nowhere else found. This typical Spanish spectacle opens with a traditional flamenco show.

The museum of miniatures is the most popular tourist destination for Asian tourists. Created by adventurer and hypnotist, Professor Max. This museum displays more than 360 pieces he has collected during his travels all over the world. Here you can admire very detailed craftsmanship, such as the reproduction of the famous "Last Supper" by Leonardo Da Vinci's cut on a grain of rice.

The Mijas Wine Museum offers wine lovers the opportunity to learn from professional oenologists. Here you can taste wines from all regions of Spain. The wine list includes cava, fine wines, table wines, red wines and roses. Each wine has been linked to a dish with salads, cheeses, meats and typical dishes such as ratatouille tartlets with tuna, baby Habas in Chinese spoons, endive tart with scorpion fish and duck bones with sweet wine of Malaga.

A tourist attraction that you cannot miss!
