Mijas Touristic Day 2013

On the 25th of September 2013, Mijas will celebrate the tourists that visit the village in Andalucia.  The town hall organises this Tourist Day Mijas 2013 and offers a flamenco show on the Plaza de la Virgin at 12h by the Flamenco Company Jaleo followed at 13h15 by the Spanish Ballet Zambra.

As every year, they will offer a glass of sweet wine to all visitors that day.

This is an initiative of the Town hall ‘Ayuntamiento’ of Mijas.  A great idea to celebrate the +100 thousand of visitors that come every year to the white village.

Park at Mijas Pueblo for 1 € per day

As of the 1st of May, you will be able to park your car at Mijas Pueblo for only 1€ per day (from noon to noon). This reduced tarif, announced by the Maire Ángel Nozal, for the parking Virgin de la Peña in the center of the village is great when visiting Mijas. 

The beautifull white village attracts yearly lots of visitors and tourists.

You can easely reach it with the bus service but of course lots of people arrive by car

and parking spots are limited.  The public car park at Virgin

 de la Peña, has 5 levels to hold a total of 500 cars and is open 24/7. Easy to find

and located in the center near the tourism office, the townhall officials really made a big effort in offering this parking at the modest rate of 1€ per day.

This reduced parking fee will help increase day tourism but also increase the number of people staying over in Mijas.
