Mojácar, Andalusia, History:

The old location of the town was on a hill near the sea, called Mojácar la Vieja. For some historians this was the old Iberian town of Meschech or Mastia and it welcomed Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans.
The new town was called Murgis-Akras, "Murgis on the heights', later called Mucacra, Mosaqar and Moxacar. It was on the border between two Roman provinces, Betica and Tarraconense.
In the first years of the VIII century, it belonged to the province of Tudmir. During the Caliphate of Cordoba it remained loyal to the authorities of the Caliphate and when this was dismembered it was conquered by the sultan from Seville, Al-Mutamid. During the nazari period it was also on the border between the Kingdoms of Granada and Murcia.
Apparently on the 10th of June 1488, the Catholic Kings, who were in Vera, sent Captain Garcilaso de la Vega to talk to Alabez, the governor of Mosaqar, who made the Captain see that he was as much from this land as anybody and that instead of treating him as an enemy he would treat him as a brother and he asked to be permitted to continue working the land. His petition was accepted and Moors and Christians carried on living side by side.
With the Moorish revolts of 1568-1570, the rebels proposed to the future Marquis of Torrealta that he would become king if he joined in the rebellion, what he rejected. The Moors were not expelled from Mojacar.
Between the XVI and XIX centuries, Mojácar was surrounded by the wall and the only gate which existed in the ancian wall ist still preserved.
The symbol of the town, the Indalo (a figure of a man), was taken from one of the figures of the “Cueva de los Letreros” (Cave of Signs) in Velez-Blanco. Indalo became the symbol for the whole province of Almeria.
From the 60s onwards, Mojácar became a tourist destination for musicians, painters and other artists which increased its possibilities as a tourist resort. In spite of speculation and damage to the landscape, it has managed to preserve the authentic flavour of an Arabic town perfectly linked to its surroundings.
