The history of this province has plated out in the lands between the sea and the mountains. Its capital was a witness to the economic and cultural boom of the western Mediterranean. The town known as Malaka by the Phoenicians was transformed into a prosperous commercial centre. After the Muslim invasion of the 8th century, the territory became Arabised and later became part of the Nasrid kingdom in Granada, when it underwent a new period of commercial and cultural prominence.

In the 19th century, the iron and steel industries of los Larios and the commercialisation of its wines provided significant economic development for the province.

After decades of economic downturn, Malaga underwent rapid economic growth in the second half of the20th century, thanks to the tourist industry. Each year millions of visitors from all over the world choose this idyllic land to relax on its sun-drenched beaches, discover its rich architectural heritage or explore the wild beauty of its mountainous interior.
