Description

The origins of Málaga date back to 770 BC when the city was first founded by the Phoenicians from Tyre, under the name of Malaka - which was derived from their word for salt, due to the salted fish close to the harbour. It later became a part of the Roman Empire, during which the city underwent extensive growth and development. The city was also an important trade centre during the Muslim Arabic rule over Spain in the 8th century.

The city is home to several historic sites such as the Alcazaba, Roman Theater and Castillo de Gibralfaro, as well as numerous museums and galleries that showcase items of historic importance. The birthplace of Pablo Picasso is yet another highlight of the city.

Málaga is a tourist hotspot, often referred to as "the capital of the Costa del Sol". It spans across an area of over 300 square kilometres and is home to a population of half-a-million residents who are mostly Roman Catholic in faith. However, Islam is also a major religion in the city due to the growing numbers of immigrants in Málaga, from various parts of the world.
