2. Mijas/Pueblo Blancos Tour
The whole region of Andalusia is synonymous with white washed villages and towns known as ‘pueblos blancos’. A pretty village worth checking out is Mijas. The town of Mijas is just a 30km drive from Malaga and is one of the most visited of the pueblos blancos. Despite its popularity with tourists, the town retains traditional Andalusian charm and hospitality. Many artists have made their home in Mijas, due to its picture-postcard location and laid back lifestyle. A wander through the sleepy old town offers the chance to browse the galleries and craft shops of local artisans. No doubt on your way you’ll pass easy-going villagers indulging in a spot of people watching from the comfort of their front door.
