Full description

This Malaga private tour from Marbella is one of the best ways to discover and experience one of the most beautiful cities of Andalusia. Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol, the second most populous city of Andalusia and the fifth largest in Spain. Being one of the oldest cities in Europe, Malaga’s history spans about 2,800 years, making it one of the oldest cities in the world. It was founded by the Phoenicians as Malaka about 770 BC. From 218 BC, it was ruled by the Roman Republic and later the Roman Empire as Malaca (Latin).

After the fall of the empire, it was under Islamic domination for 800 years, but in 1487, it again came under Christian rule in the Reconquista. The archaeological remains and monuments from the Phoenician, Roman, Arabic and Christian eras make the historic center of the city an “open museum”, displaying its history of more than 3,000 years. Thanks to its strategic position in the Strait, its port has always had an important role in international trade.

This important cultural infrastructure and the artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Malaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture.
