Malaga (/[email protected]@/; Spanish: ['malaga]), is a municipality in Spain. It is the capital of the Province Malaga, an autonomous community of Andalusia. It is second in Andalusia, after Seville, and sixth in Spain with a population of 578.460. It is located on the Costa del Sol, or Coast of the Sun of the Mediterranean. It is approximately 100 km (62.14 mi) east of the Strait of Gibraltar. It is also about 130 km (80.78 miles) north of Africa.

Malaga's 2,800-year history makes it one of Europe's oldest cities and the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world. Most scholars believe it was established by the Phoenicians in Malaka [5] (Punic,, MLK). [6] The city was under Ancient Carthage's hegemony from the 6th century BC. From 218 BC it was ruled over by the Roman Republic, then the empire of Malaca (Latin). It fell under the control of the Visigothic empire, and it was ruled by Islamic rule for 800 years. However, in 1487 the Crown of Castile took over the city during the Granada War. The historic centre of the city is an \"open museum\" that displays its nearly 3,000-year history thanks to the archaeological remains and monuments dating back to the Phoenician and Roman, Arabic, and Christian eras.
