Málaga

'''Málaga''' ( north of Africa.

Málaga enjoys a subtropical–mediterranean (Mediterranean climate) climate. It has one of the warmest winters in Europe, with average temperatures of .

Málaga's history spans about 2,800 years, making it one of the oldest cities in the world (List of cities by time of continuous habitation). 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 as ''Mālaqah'' ('''مالقة''') 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, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and actor Antonio Banderas were born in Málaga. The magnum opus of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, "Malagueña (Malagueña (song))", is named for the music of this region of Spain.

The most important business sectors in Málaga are tourism, construction and technology services, but other sectors such as transportation and logistics are beginning to expand. The Andalusia Technology Park (PTA) (Andalusia Technology Park), located in Málaga, has enjoyed significant growth since its inauguration in 1992. Málaga is the main economic and financial centre of southern Spain, home of the region (Andalusia)'s largest bank, Unicaja, and the fourth-ranking city in economic activity in Spain (Economy of Spain) behind Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia (Valencia, Spain). url http: www.anuarieco.lacaixa.comunicacions.com java X?cgi caixa.le_menuGeneral.pattern title LaCaixa Bank economic report, 2011 (spanish)
