    Hi! I am thinking about going to the markets in Mijas and Benalmadena, does anyone know the opening hours or at what time during the day these markets take place? Also I am not completely familiar with the areas so any further direction on how to find the places is very welcome! Thank you in advance and enjoy the summer everyone.

    • Hola Dorthe! Al markets have similar opening hours: The first day of inauguration, they normally start around 7 pm, and the remaining days they open from around 10:30 am to 2:30 pm and again from around 6 pm until very late.
      Regarding the locations, we attached you a couple of links of Google maps. Kind regards!
