MALAGA’S council has contracted a company to excavate and create an archaeological park in the city’s Phoenician ruins.

The €21,622 project, which is expected to take nine months to execute, will see a cultural site created in the Cerro de Villar reservoir, allowing, “people to find out about the importance of the Phoenician influence in the south of the Iberian Peninsula,” according to the council.

The works, which would take place on publicly owned land, would include building a bridge of the mouth of the Senda Litoral, a project which is pending approval from the Junta de Andalucia and which would cost €750,000.
