I hope that once again I can awaken your curiosity about the past and the origin of our city; this time I am going to tell you the history of the Romans in Malaga and about some of the monuments and remains that have survived until today. Malaga is a city with an ancient culture and history, would you like to learn about its past?
The history of Malaga goes back a long way. In this article I hope to arouse your curiosity to know the origin of Malaga. The birth of a city that cannot be understood without the sum of diverse cultures and civilizations, but everything began in a very concrete period, with the arrival of the Phoenicians to our coasts and the beginning of the commercial routes.
Around the year 200, when the Romans dominated Europe, travelling from Londinium (London) to Malaca (Malaga) took approximately 24 days over 3455 kilometres during the month of August. It was a very long journey mostly by sea bordering the coasts of France and Portugal. Want to know more about this adventure and how much did it cost comparing to actual times?
Malaga has an enormous amount of places to visit, but surely a visit to a cemetery wouldn’t even cross our minds during our stay...a cemetery isn’t exactly a touristy place, and we generally wish not to have to visit one while we’re alive...however, we’ll find not one, but several cemeteries in Malaga that are well worth a visit as they’re declared cultural value.
