Chapel of Virgen de la Pena

Chapel of Virgen de la Pena

Carved out of a rock high up on a well-known viewpoint, this unusual chapel is famous for housing an image of Virgen de la Pena, the patroness of Mijas. According to local legend, the image was hidden in the chapel for 500 years before being unearthed by a builder's children who were led to the spot by a pigeon.
