The Costa del Sol region
Consideration of the Costa del Sol as an international destination begins to take shape from the second half of last century, a time when elite tourism, small and selective, looking for new places, a period that also coincides with the incorporation to tourism of broader social layers.
Sculpture Architect José Banús Puerto Banús - MarbellaPor regard to the name or 'brand' Costa del Sol, several paternity and none too clear, but what is documented is that this area of ??the Andalusian coast was advertised with the name by which today is known worldwide in the Latin American Exhibition held in Seville in 1929. According to some witnesses, the Costa del Sol name was coined by an Austrian consul residing in Cadiz and frequently traveled to Almeria. The movement performed at the coast and, necessarily, had to go through the provinces of Malaga and Granada, and all this coastline the Costa del Sol called after checking the mild climate of the area. Years later, with the extraordinary emergence coastal resort of Malaga, the Costa del Sol was confined exclusively to the province of Malaga.
However, the true story of the Costa del Sol in Torremolinos starts with a clear precedent: the presence of George Langworthy, better known by locals as "English" because of its British origin. This unique character is installed, along with his wife, in the Castle of Santa Clara, which takes in the late nineteenth century and later would become a residence for foreigners.
Years later, Charlotte Alessadri Tettamanzy become one of its properties at the Parador de Montemar, and shortly after the hotel opened its doors to the Rock. Few could imagine that around the first three places, which came people of strange customs, would emerge a major tourist emporium. The hotel opened in 1959 Swordfish became like the starting gun to the tourist for Torremolinos, which were beginning to see many famous-especially great movie stars, which, in turn, attract more visitors great media coverage.
The dawn of Torremolinos on tourism was an inevitable domino effect, and thus, in the late 60's and early 70's, nearby towns such as Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Mijas, also started an unsuspected growth in tourism, which contributed in no small part to the fact that the Costa del Sol also began to become a huge film set which was making a film after another (about 250 until the end of 2005).
But a few miles west of Torremolinos began to brew another "boom" in this case, particularly, at the hands of Alfonso de Hohenlohe, Norberto Goizueta and José Luque, who put Marbella on top of international tourism. The first, with the opening of Marbella Club (1954), got aristocrats, tycoons, movie stars the most quoted, the "jet set", in short, be summoned every year in Marbella. And there was still another twist: the inauguration of Puerto Banus, in the 60's, which led to the scale of large yachts in its docks and building a navy that was placed without difficulty in the most famous of the Mediterranean, if takes into account the number of internationally known personalities that usually visit the establishments concentrated there.
And not enough luxury hotels to meet the diversified demand for tourism with high purchasing power, so that, at par, the clubs open their doors and more sophisticated nightclubs, some casinos and, above all, there is a network of golf courses unparalleled in any other part of Europe. The leisure offer is complemented by the implementation of numerous water parks, the opening of theme parks and attractions and the sights trained on other segments such as conference tourism, cultural and interior, with the Serrania de Ronda and the Axarquía as areas of interest, an interest which is then extended also to the region of Antequera and the Guadalhorce.
Promenade of Playa de la Duquesa ManilvaMenos spectacular, and no less remarkable has been the development of tourism in the eastern Costa del Sol, framed almost entirely in the region of Axarquia (name of Andalusian origin unequivocal .) The best known town in this territory, Nerja, rang in the context of tourism in 1959 after the discovery of a cave with unusual dimensions in the nearby village of Maro.
The Cave of Nerja, where is held annually in July, an international festival of music and dance, has been without doubt the claim, along with a unique landscape of mountains and cliffs, which has put not only this county but also to all those around them in a prominent tourist location. The International Festival of the Nerja Cave, which in 2009 celebrated 50 years of history, became, from its beginnings in an inescapable cultural event which has done nothing but increase and enhance the reputation year after year, with the participation of the highest world figures in music, dance, singing and flamenco.
Saved the difficulty of communication with the city of Málaga after opening a few years ago the Mediterranean, the Costa del Sol East is emerging as one of the most interesting tourist attractions in the province of Malaga.
In the half century between that incipient Torremolinos, surprised their possibilities, peered in disbelief, the international tourist scene, until today, the Costa del Sol has adapted to the needs of tourist flows.
