Property to rent Mijas long lets
Mijas is a beautiful, authentic Spanish village approximately 40 kilometres from Marbella. It is divided into three sections, namely Mijas Pueblo, Mijas Costa and Las Lagunas. Las Lagunas is the commercial area with large industries. Mijas Pueblo is the historic village which remains mostly untouched by mass tourism. Mijas Costa is a resort on the coast which is a popular destination for many British visitors. Mijas has certainly been around since the 8th century and legend has it that Mijas Pueblo may have remained inconsequential if two local children had not seen an apparition of The Virgin Mary. The apparition told the children of a 500 year old shrine covered by the town walls. The local priest uncovered the shrine; a new shrine has since been built into the rocks.
Main Tourist Attractions
As well as the beautiful, clean beaches situated in Mijas Costa, which provide the opportunity for watersports and relaxing in the sun, the children will enjoy the Parque Acuático. This attraction is a water park with many things to do including slides and a wave pool. There is also the Shrine of the Virgin carved into the rock. At its elevated level you can also enjoy the panoramic views of the coast and Mijas. The stunning Muralla Gardens have flowers which bloom all year round and plenty of resting places to sit and admire the surroundings.
