Federación Malagueña de Peñas ‘La Alcazaba’ was established in 1981 through the union of a group of institutions from Malaga, most of them with a caseta at the fairground. Its goals are the promotion and defense of Málaga peñas (associations), the development and consolidation of a good community spirit in all its fields of actions, based on full respect to the characteristics, personality and features of each peña, as well as solidarity between them. It also fosters the promotion and development of activities in the interest of all the peñas which are member of the institution.
It has got more than 100 association members. Although most of them are based in Malaga, there are peñas from other towns such as Torremolinos, Antequera, Rincón de la Victoria, Alhaurín de la Torre or Teba. In total, the Federación represents a group of some 12,000 people, relating to nearly 40,000 people in Malaga province, including family relatives and supporters.
