Malaga surrenders to the Christian forces of Isabella of Castile and Fernando de Aragon.  Malaga was at that time part of the Emirate of Granada, which eventually fell in 1492.

A century earlier the Moroccan traveler Ibn Battuta had described Malaga as “one of the largest and most beautiful towns of Andalusia [uniting] the conveniences of both sea and land, and is abundantly supplied with foodstuffs and fruits” [quoted in Wikipedia ‘Malaga’].
