“From the beautiful Malaga…..” wrote the traveller and geographer Ibn Battuta (1304-1368):.. “It is one of the most beautiful capitals of Al-Andalus, and combines the advantages of inland and maritime cities. Its figs and almonds, its fine ceramics and gold porcelain, are exported to the furthest corners of East and West.”
Owing to its strategic location, Malaga is a mix of cultures: from its Phoenician origins to Roman occupation (the Roman theatre and Garum pools are the proof); the Alcazaba takes us to the Muslim period and the Victoria Sanctuary recalls the reconquest by the Catholic Monarchs.
