COSTA DEL SOL
Fuengirola

The municipality of Fuengirola is one of the smallest in the province of Malaga, with a coastal strip that stretches along seven kilometers of coastline with excellent beaches.

It still retains a certain traditional air in the urban center, but the dominant appearance of Fuengirola is that of large buildings: hotels, apartments, aparthotels, etc., typical of its main activity: sun and beach tourism.

A BIT OF HISTORY

It was populated by the bástulos, the Phoenicians and later by the Carthaginians. The Romans called it Suel and the Arabs Sohail, which is the name of a star that according to Ibn-Jallicam could only be seen on the peninsula from this geographical point.

In 912, Abderramán III, ordered the construction of a fortress that rises at the vertex that forms between the coastline and the mouth of the Sohail river; the remains of this castle, still surprise in the landscape of the fuengiroleño coast.

In the seventeenth century the town took the current name of Fuengirola, and it seems that it is due to the name that Genoese sailors used to give it who traveled these coasts and used bowling, which they called "gironas".

PROMINENT FIGURES
