History of the Village La Cala De Mijas
La Cala De Mijas was initially a small fishing village in Andalucia in the southern of Spain. The fishing village began to change from a classic white-painted village to a vacation destination in the 1960s, this was when the charter tourism from Scandinavia started with flights to Malaga! The village is centrally located on the Costa Del Sol with a 25-30 minute drive from both Malaga and Marbella.
From the beginning, the village was called La Cala del Moral (Mulberry Bay). It was named after the local industry wich was to cultivat Mulberrys in a large scale. But at that time another village in the same region had the same name, so in the early 70s the villages name was changed to La Cala De Mijas (Bay of Mijas).
One of the historic sites is the watchtower, located in the middle of the promenade. It was built in the 16th century, it’s popularly called “Torreon”. It is one of four watchtowers that is located along the coastline of Costa Del Sols. These watchtowers were used until the early 19th century when the coast often had pirate attacks…
La Cala is now a lively tourist town with about 25000 permanent residents and in the summers around 60000 residents in total. La Cala have tried to keep the houses low in order to get a nice cosy feeling, so very few houses are more than 4 floors high. The beach that stretches for miles is fantastic!
