The largest of the offices of HiFX are at Centro Plaza in Nueva Andalucía where they have been based since September 2012. Marbella is a city and municipality in southern Spain, belonging to the province of Málaga in the autonomous community of Andalusia. It is part of the Costa del Sol. In the 1990’s, Marbella became acknowledged as a "Universal City" and when tourism started its boom Marbella was equipped with facilities such as municipal offices, cultural centres, new parks and avenues, sports centres and golf courses.
Málaga was one of the Iberian cities where Muslim rule reigned the longest, having been part of the Emirate of Granada. While most other parts of the peninsula had already been liberated by the Reconquista, the medieval Christian Spanish struggled to drive the Muslims out. Málaga was conquered by Christian forces on 18 August 1487. The Muslim inhabitants resisted assaults and artillery bombardments before hunger forced them to surrender. The scene of the Catholic Kings claiming Marbella for Spain is depicted in the engravings found in the choir area of the Cathedral of Toledo. The Moors handed over the keys for the city to King Fernando. Given the title "Noble and Loyal City" the structure was modified to reflect the new religion.
In the following centuries economic activity was centred on livestock and agriculture. Industrialization in Marbella began in earnest during the19th Century. Mining was the major industry then, and the Sierra Blanca Mines were the focal point and Marbella working hand in hand with Malaga became the second most important industrial province in the region. Málaga had a period of rapid development in the 19th century, becoming with Barcelona one of the two most industrialised cities of Spain. But that early industry was gradually dismantled, because the successive national governments were supporting the industrial centres in the north of the country.
Prince Alfonso de Hohenlohe's arrival in Marbella in the 1940's, as a result of a problem with his Rolls Royce proved pivotal to the next phase of the city. The prince was so enchanted with the area that he decided to buy land for commercial purposes, building hotels and apartment complexes. In 1954 he opened up the Marbella Club Hotel, which still stands today on the Golden Mile. His relationship with those of the royal courts of Europe was such that he quickly convinced the ruling elite to vacation in this new hot spot, where they could enjoy casual, yet discreet luxury. Businessmen started constructing hotels and residential properties in Marbella and the rich and famous started to consider Marbella their very own playground, leading to an even greater rise in Marbella’s tourism industry.
Natural sons of Malaga include the internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas. The magnum opus of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, "Malaguena", is named for the music of this region of Spain.
