Really wanted to visit this beautiful simple building up in the mountains. The signage wasn't great so we just looked up and made our own way. Heading onto the main road we saw the first sign to follow the path. It was an easy to...More

This church has bee around since roughly 1710! It is said the monks had to pay penance by walking the mountain path bare foot-it certainly would have been torturous.Finding our way to the very back of Mijas Pueblo, across the road to the signposted start...More

The view from the location of this church is beautiful. You need to be reasonably fit to get up here. The path is not only steep, but rocky. Take proper trainers or walking boots. We did a longer walk going past the church and then...More

If you appreciate lovely views, it is worth the walk. You need good shoes and can be a bit too much if you are not keen on walking/hiking. Not necessary suitable for younger kids - unless they love walking and amazing views or they get...More

Very small chapel but worth seeing it. The route there among narrow streets is very charming. It is a little bit far away and you need about 2 hours to go there from the city center. But it is very nice and I recommend to...More
