Founded by the Phoenicians in the seventh century a. C., Malaga was a confederated city of the Roman Empire and a prosperous Medina Andalusí four times the capital of his own kingdom, which fell after its accession to the Crown of Castile in 1487. During the nineteenth century the town experienced a remarkable and revolutionary activity that stood as the first industrial city in Spain and earned him the title the first in danger of freedom. Stage one of the bloodiest episodes of the Spanish Civil War hero and the explosion of the tourist boom of the'60s and'70s, Malaga is now a significant economic and cultural center at the regional and an important hub of communications with its port and airport.

    The train from Malaga airport just takes 10 mins to Torremolinos ( direction Fuengirola ) costs € 1.40. A good idea to ask for directions from the airport info desk ( to catch the train , its a bit hard to find it the 1st time.
