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.
