Day trip to Mijas: White Villages
A few kilometers from the Costa del Sol in Malaga visitors can discover the most traditional villages of the province who have maintained throughout the centuries some typical traces of the Muslim era of Al-Andalus; small white gems located in a magnificent geography, you certainly worth being discovered: The villages of whitewashed houses, many with remains of castles or fortresses, located in mountain areas and a very different atmosphere.
As a common element, the name of the group of municipalities that make up this route is the dazzling white of the whitewashed houses, a legacy of the Arab-Mediterranean civil architecture. It is easy to recognize the Muslim heritage in the narrow winding streets and steep slopes, showing extraordinary at every turn corners. In villages, each space can be a treat for the senses, walking through windows and balconies full of flowers that contrast with the white walls, with a temperate climate that keeps the hills and green fields. Another common denominator is the character of its people, open and hospitable, and the flow of life, with squares and corners where old men sit and pass the time; bars and taverns and simple, authentic cuisine.
Here are just a few of the villages in the province of Málaga, as the complete White Towns of Andalusia extends to the province of Cadiz; a route that every visitor can prepare and determined according to your taste and time. The route of the white villages requires imagination and determination by the traveler. This means that, given its size and topography, it would be impossible to plan a single path, a standard path.
The best time to do this route, or part thereof, is from February to late June. In summer, the heat during the day can be too stifling, and winter temperatures can be low in the interior, especially in parts of the route.
