Mijas (Málaga) is located inland from the sea, away from the hustle and bustle of Malaga,
but it is no longer remote or unkown as many have chosen this village to live.
The fiestas and feria that honor their patron saint, Nuestra Señora de la Virgen de la Peña,
take place in early September. These days are filled with sporting, musical and cultural
activities, dance, music and some of the most traditional foods of the area. Special
programs are designed for the children and a King and Queen of the Feria are selected and honored.
This is an event that is replete with fun and where the true Andalucian spirit is most evident.
