I am looking for congenial small towns to visit on day trips. I have to admit that I am TERRIFIED of some of the mountain roads...Our base will be in La Carihuela ( between Torremo and Benalmadena). I love Mijas..and can tolerate the road up to there. I love Ronda and can more or less deal with that road..That said, last year we saw Ojen on the map north of Marbella and headed for it..I had a "mountain road incident" on THAT road. That means a panic attack (no, I am not the driver) My husband ordered me out of the vehicle when he started to park on a very steep slope and I started screaming ..I ran down through the town crying..enough said.. So, any suggestions??
