As you stroll along the Centro de artes Mijas , you see the White washesHouses and buildings with winding alleys.coloured flower pots hanging on walls..all you see is shops, cafes and restaurants. A andalusian village which has beauty to see and very touristy.

Mijas is best absorbed by a slow walk around the historical mostly pedestrianized part of the village. Wander the streets with their white washed appearing buildings, explore the shops, admire the churches, linger in the squares, devour some freshly fried donuts, watch the locals going...More

Sorry I can't really help you as we were only in Mijas for 4 or 5 hours one Sunday Evening. All I can advise is don't go to the Pizzeria La Bella Copia. We unfortunately did and it really wasn't all that great.

There is a multi-storeycar park which you will see on your way into the village. The best restaurant I have been to in Mijas is la Alcazaba.

Yes,only thing you may find closed is some seasonal restaurants that are right on the beach. Costa del Sol caters to tourist all year long.
