The history of Malaga port dates back to the 9th century before our era, with Phoenician origins, who established a commercial colony in Malaga's bay. After the defeat of the Phoenicians, The Carthaginians took control of the area and it was the Romans who later on exploited the port's potential exporting its popular sauce known as "Garo" to the whole of Rome.
After the fall of the roman empire and subsequent defeat of the barbarians by the Muslims, Malaga port lost most of its commercial activity until the period of the province's growth as from the 11th century, when the citadel was built and commercial routes were established with the far east.
After the conquest of Malaga by the Christian armies, the port gained vital importance for the city's growth, and due to the impossibility of remodelling it and adapting it to the new days, they established armadas to defend the coast. The port went through constant reformations that have continued until today, with the latest and profound reformation and modernisation of its facilities creating new areas of entertainment and leisure.
