The golden age of the Costa del Sol
In the 50’s, especially 60’s and 70’s the Malaga Costa del Sol experienced a tourist boom without precedent. Foreign exchange and currency came as fresh air in the country: the phenomenon of tourism exceeded the purely economic to encompass other aspects-social, cultural, artistic, ideological, at that time insufficiently explored. Spanish films dedicated to the Costa del Sol at the time we use to reconstruct the landscape of a golden age and were made on the basis of topics: sun, beach, sangria, flamenco and paella. Topics were undoubtedly very real, but they did not portray at all cosmopolitanism, tolerance, fun and zest for life that summed up the true spirit of the coast.
