"Gitanillas" in Mijas

Culture 27/01/2014
Do you love flowers? Do you have green fingers? Do you do some gardening in your spare time?

We don’t know about you but we really love flowers and for that reason many flowers and plants decorate our hotel to make it even more welcoming and beautiful.

It seems the Mijas Council shares the opinion that flowers make everything more beautiful and cheerful and for this reason it has decided to invest in 4.000 pots of beautiful “gitanillas” to decorate the streets of Mijas Pueblo, La Cala and Las Lagunas.

“Gitanilla”, which literally means “little gypsy”, is a variety of geranium and one of the most popular plants in Andalusia as it can be found in those beautiful and typical patios and balconies tourists love to photograph so much.

“Gitanillas” are very resistant and easy to take care of as they don’t need much water though they require lots of sunlight, so Spain, and especially Costa del Sol, is the perfect place for them to grow happily.

In Andalusia you can see them on plant pots on the floor though here the most typical thing is to hang them on the walls, and like this is how you will find them in Mijas.

Last week we recommended you to visit Mijas and La Cala to enjoy its Wintery Food Route. Now, after what we have just told you, you have a new reason to include Mijas in your list of places to visit on Costa del Sol while on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola.

Taking into consideration how beautiful and colourful Mijas looks right now we are sure your holiday snaps are going to be amazing!
