History

Mojacar has been inhabited by numerous and varied villages since ancient times. Populated since the Bronze Age around 2000 BC. C., Phoenician and Carthaginian merchants came to serve growing communities. Under Greek rule, they created a settlement called Murgis-Akra, a word from which would derive, after being Latinized, the name Moxacar, then that of Muxacra Moros and finally the current name of Mojácar.

Mojácar, once again began to expand until the early eighteenth century, when the census of the time recorded 10,000 people. In the mid-nineteenth century, Mojácar began a new period of decline. State records reveal that several severe droughts caused this fall of the city, with the consequent emigration to northern Spain, Europe and South America.
