THE pretty Mijas Pueblo up in the hills some 20 kilometres from La Cala de Mijas relies to a great extent on Spanish and Foreign visitors to the village.
In order to encourage movement from the coast, the council is sponsoring a new Ruta de la Tapa which will run every Tuesday and Thursday of July and August from 7.30pm until 11pm.
During that time, you can visit one of nine bars/restaurants and for €2.50 receive a drink (beer, wine, water, tinto de verano or a soft drink) as well as a tapa.
There are also two ice cream parlours involved which will remain open until midnight where for €2.50 you will be served an ice cream without a drink.
There is plenty to see and do in village and parking is just €1 for 24 hours in the large multi-storey car park
