Southern Spain is very popular for its gastronomy, and Mijas is ideal for enjoying the exquisite cuisine of the Malaga coast. The base of gastronomy is the products of the sea, especially fish, seashells and fresh greens from local producers. Spoon dishes are a very popular recipe in the south, and they are usually called “de cuchara”. They include the delicious salmorejo, gazpachuelo or ajo blanco. Tapas and fried fish are also great bites you can wash down with a dry white or a fresh beer. You should also grab a drink at La Boveda del Flamenco near Plaza de la Constitucion before retiring to your villa in Mijas.
5. Admire the Castillo de Colomares
Believe it or not, Dr Esteban Martín was very disappointed because there weren’t any monuments, so he decided to build a fabulous fairy-tale castle designed by himself. For seven years, two bricklayers built it, blending different styles common in Spain, including romantic hints, romanesque, gothic, Renaissance and Mudejar. A tongue-in-cheek feature here is the oriental pagoda, reminding visitors of Columbus’ search for a route to China. Columbus had been searching for a route to China when he landed in the New World.
