On behalf of its strategic southern position, Malaga had an essential economic function for Mediterranean commerce and trading. In fact, over the centuries, the city was crossed and conquered by great civilizations.  Such as the Romans, Visigoths, Moorish, and Catholics. This brought their traditions, religious beliefs, and cultures. 

During the 19th century, Malaga became one of the leading cities of Spain for the Industrial Revolution. Further, experiencing a steep growth of the manufacturing sector.
