Discover the History of Fuengirola

Today we discover the history of Fuengirola. Because in addition to sun and beach, you can enjoy Fuengirola all year round thanks to its history.

But if you want to know more about Fuengirola and the Costa del Sol, visit our blog. Because every day we bring you more post.

Discover the History of Fuengirola

The origin of Fuengirola is Phoenician. However, it is possible that it was previously a basic settlement. In the texts of Hecateo, in 500 B.C., mention is like of Syalis. That is why it could have been one of the Punic colonies on the Malaga coast.  From the 3rd century BC and after the Second Punic War, Syalis, like all the settlements in the south of Hispania, became Roman domain.

During the Roman period Syalis became known as Suel. And the Romans left remains such as the baths and the villa of the Finca del Secretario (Secretary’s Estate) or the fish salting places on the slopes of the castle mountain. Valuable archaeological remains have also been found, including a statue of the goddess Venus and a funerary altar.

With Germanic migrations, the Vandals were here from the 5th century onwards. And after the Byzantines, the village was abandoned for unknown reasons.

Sohail

After this period without information about the village, the Arabs, coming from North Africa, conquered the area. It called Sohail, like the castle that dominated the population. The castle was so called because, according to legend, the star of Sohail could only be seen from this castle. Sohail then had a quite extensive, fertile and small village term.  Illustrious writers and poets were also born in the village. But it would be burned and again the neighbors retreated to the mountains of Mijas.

Christian Conquest

On August 7, 1485, the castle of Sohail was conquered by the Christian troops, with the Count of Trivento in command of the squadron. After the conquest there was an attempt to repopulate the place with 30 neighbors, but the threat of invasions from North Africa and other factors such as the shortage of land near Fuengirola to buy, explain the failure of repopulation and in 1511.

Contemporary Age

During the Spanish War of Independence, Sohail Castle was in the hands of the French as a consequence of the French occupation of Spain. Being the scene of the so-called Battle of Fuengirola, which pitted a Spanish-British army against a Polish garrison at the service of France.

In 1822 some neighbours requested the creation of a town hall in the locality to the Diputación Provincial de Málaga.  The municipality of Mijas, for its part, submitted a report minimizing fishing activity and which noted that the census of Fuengirola was only 409 people. The Diputació gave the reason to the city council of Mijas and Fuengirola had to wait until 1841 to constitute its own city council.

The railway arrived in the city in 1916 and the car in the 20’s. From the decade of the 30’s began to build beachfront hotels. They are the beginnings of the avalanche of tourists that since the 1960s has not ceased to arrive in Fuengirola, completely transforming the municipality.

Discover the history of Benalmádena

Discover with us the history of Benalmádena. Because Benalmádena is a great tourist centre but also a historical city. That’s why in this post we show you the history of Benalmádena.

And if you want to know more about Benalmádena and the Costa del Sol, visit our blog. Because every day we bring you more information in our posts.

Discover the History of Benalmádena

Pre-Roman Period

From approximately the IX-VIII centuries B.C.. It is located on the left bank of the Arroyo de la Miel, a village known as Cerro de la Era. These settlers could have come from groups established in the vicinity in the previous era. Which in turn gravitated around what the classic sources call “Tartessos”.

From the 8th century B.C., on the coast of Andalusian lands there was a stable installation of Phoenician settlers from the city of Tiro in the Bay of Cadiz.

Roman Age

After the Roman conquest, a series of political, social and economic transformations will take place that will have an impact on lifestyles.

The latest discoveries reinforce the theory of the important role played by the coast in the exploitation of its fishing wealth during Roman times.

Other complementary activities were necessary for the development of these industrial activities, such as the manufacture of container containers, mainly amphorae for storage and transport.

Considering the itineraries of the classical fountains, the Roman Benalmadena would be located between Malaca and Suel (Fuengirola).

Between the 6th and 7th centuries, the coastal strip between Cadiz and Cartagena became part of the Byzantine Empire.

The Middle Ages

After the expulsion of the Byzantines in the 7th century, there is no news of the settlement in Benalmádena until the Nasrid period. The fact that written sources do not allude to Benalmádena does not necessarily mean that it is non-existent, but rather that it was of little importance in the general context of al-Andalus.

In 1456, the army of King Henry IV of Castile left Antequera and reached the ports of Málaga. From there, he continued his campaign, destroying everything in his path. Along the way, they set fire to and razed the town of Benalmádena, which was left forsaken. The Moors took refuge in the Sierra. But once this gale of the Christians is over, the Moors return to the place.

Modern Age

In the 17th century, the province of Málaga suffered epidemics, droughts and calamities such as a tidal wave, an earthquake (1680), as well as the closure of the port to English ships (1673), which paralysed the sale of agricultural products for export. However, Benalmádena continued with an agrarian-based economy. In the third quarter of the 17th century, Benalmadena’s economy grew slowly with the expansion of viticulture, figs, almonds and sweet potatoes.

Contemporary Ages

In the 19th century Benalmádena’s economic activity took off, not only in the agricultural sector, but also in the industrial sector.

In the middle of the 19th century, investors arrived in Benalmádena looking for land suitable for vines. The population increased considerably with the arrival of these new investors. The destruction of the vineyards by the phylloxera plague in the last quarter of the 20th century wreaked havoc throughout the province of Malaga. Unemployment, hunger and this plague together with epidemics of malaria, typhus and cholera are fed with Benalmádena.

The great demographic boom of the municipality occurred from the fifties and sixties. Because the birth and development of tourism on the Spanish coast.

Because Torre del Mar isn’t just sun and beach. We present you to enjoy the history of Torre del Mar in this post.

Also if you want to know more about Torre del Mar and the Costa del Sol, as always visit our blog.

Enjoy the History of Torre del Mar

Antiquity and Origins of the History of Torre del Mar

First of all, the origins of the nucleus of Torre del Mar date back to the Phoenician and Greek periods. And during the Roman period the locality, known as Maenoba, acquired a certain notoriety for its commercial importance.

Middle Ages

Subsequently, written references appear in the 11th century, in the memoirs of Ab-dallah, the last Ziri king of Granada, with the Arabic name “Mariyyat Ballis” – مَرِيَّةبَلِّش.

During the 15th century, Torre del Mar was dedicated to the defence of the area from foreign invasions and pirate attacks.

Modern Age

Opposite these coasts, on 24 August 1704, a naval confrontation took place between the English navy, which had just a few days ago conquered Gibraltar, and the French navy. Which is the Naval Battle of Velez-Malaga. In this battle, Blas de Lezo lost a leg when he was a cabin boy in a Spanish frigate.

Contemporary Age

Already in the nineteenth century, Torre del Mar is taking its current form, was composed of four neighborhoods:

  • that of the Parish
  • of the Vineyard
  • of the New Houses
  • and the Castle Neighbourhood

At the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century Torre del Mar already has railways and roads, which facilitates the development of this town.

From the beginning of the 20th century, tourism was its objective. Because in the early years of the twentieth century built several spas, in order to attract tourism.

Although it is not until the 60s, when tourism begins to change the physiognomy of this place, which grows significantly, with large avenues, large buildings, a promenade and an important infrastructure to assume the current tourism.

Its port, now defunct, was in its time an ideal place for the refuge of boats arriving on the coast.

Torre del Mar enjoyed its own town hall for a short period of the 19th century, between 1842 and 1848, but economic difficulties led back to the administrative dependence of Velez-Malaga, which remains to this day.

A spa town since the beginning of the 20th century to try to attract tourism, it was in the 1960s when the area experienced an important urban boom.

Benalnatura

Situated between the beaches of La Viborilla and Las Yucas, Benalnatura is the only nudist beach within Benalmádena. A place where peace and respect are the cornerstone for the practice of nudism.
