The situation, the natural resources and good climate have made Málaga
a place inhabited since prehistoric times. This can be seen in the archaeological
sites named the Yacimientos Arqueológicos de la Araña (Parque
Prehistórico de Málaga – Prehistoric Park of Málaga), where visitor can learn
more about the Neanderthal times, the Neolithic and the Bronze Age. It
consists of an Interpretation Center with copies and original parts of these
sites and also caves that can be visited by appointment.
Among the remains found in their caves and rock shelters in this
centre, tools manufactured in stone from the lower Paleolithic, knives
of silex and even remnants of food, especially products of the
bay of Málaga as mussels, are exposed.
