The Andalucia region

Málaga'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, and from the 6th century BC was under the hegemony of Ancient Carthage. Then 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 rich history of more than 3,000 years.

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

The internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were born in Málaga. The magnum opus of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, "Malagueña", is named for the music of this region of Spain.

Málaga enjoys a subtropical–mediterranean climate. It has one of the warmest winters in Europe, with average temperatures of 17 °C (62.6 °F) during the day and 7–8 °C (45–46 °F) at night in the period from December through February. The summer season lasts about eight months, from April through November, although in the remaining four months temperatures sometimes reach around 20 °C (68.0 °F).



Since the early 1830s the city of Málaga experiences intense industrialization, but it was not until the year 1860 when the crowded conditions of the majority of the population make clear the need to extend the city beyond the traditional city limits. The extension plan of 1861 did not provide new spaces just to urbanize and did not resolve the tensions arising from a rapidly growing city. In the western area settled by that date seven factories metallurgical, textile and chemical requiring the work of more than 4000 workers daily. With the passing of the decade, the number of factories increased to twelve and consequently increased the number of daily workers who moved to the area.

In this context, the industrialist Eduardo Huelin Reissig introduced in 1868 the project Huelin working class neighborhood, in an area near the factories outside the extensions provided. The project petendía establishing homes for the working class on a large scale, so it was necessary to draw up a plan for the construction of an entire new neighborhood. It was a revolutionary in that it was the first neighborhood to workers who did not consist of the typical corrals where workers were crammed in extreme conditions, Thus, a project conceived of houses, grouped into small blocks whose corners are placed the only two-storey apartments, designed to foremen. The poyecto included a church, a clinic and a school, in addition to more than 1000 homes, one of the biggest projects of the time across the country.
