With culture for all tastes, Spanish and Andalusian essence, style and class, a sense of festivity and a particular affection for words, the city of Málaga is where you will learn Spanish with passion! Open-minded and very trendy, the region abounds with fashionable places where enjoying yourself is part of the daily agenda.
Also Picasso, the most famous son of Málaga, would have appreciated that his native city is well on its way to forging a sound reputation in the art world for itself. The effervescent capital of the Costa del Sol is home to no less than 26 museums, including the Centre for Contemporary Art, the Museo del Arte Flamenco and the famous Museo Picasso which shows more than 200 works of the painter, the prodigy of the city which is proud of its artistic descent.
Málaga is located in a privileged natural enclave. Very close to North Africa, sheltered from the winds by a chain of hills at its back and bathed by the Mediterranean, the city benefits from an exceptionally mild climate. The 130 km of beaches stretching the length of the coast invite you to make the most of the impressive number of hours of sunshine listed for this region - 4290 per year, which makes an average of 11,67 hours per day! Who says better?
Consequently, you will also appreciate the picturesque small streets of the old town where you can shade yourself from the rays that are too intense and discover a city which evokes, through its numerous monuments, an eventful history, marked by the successive passages of Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Germanic peoples and Arabs. Finally, it was the Catholic kings who took over the city in the 15th century and made, over the centuries, a city of unquestionable importance of it.
