Mijas offers so many different things, and this is one of the many unique and interesting things. A lot of history here, not just a touristic activity.

A most beautiful beautiful little chapel built into a cave at the top of a hill. The chapel is serene and breathtaking. The views are stunning. Absolutely worth a visit.

Apparently that’s how long it took the hermit who dug the cave that forms the core of this interesting little chapel. Worth a visit to see the regalia inside and the view from the roof observation point when it is open.

We travelled here by local bus - cheap and what a fantastic journey up into the mountains. The views from up here are wonderful and well worth seeking out all the local and historic points.

The way this beautiful Chapel has been carved in the rock is absolutely amazing. So peaceful. It is an absolute jewel and is definitely a "must-see". Highly recommend.

While not a reason on its own to travel to Mijas Pueblo, you should make a point of visiting while you are there. There is a simple spirituality which one might find at the Capella. There is also an attractive marauder just outside the stone...More

A tribute to a mans ability to create a haven of peace and prayer. Very moving and an introduction to an incredible mirador sensitively landscaped.
