School's Location

Spanish language school on Malaga

Málaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol region in the south of Spain and stretches over kilometers of beautiful beaches due to the city’s increasing expansions along the coastline of the Mediterranean sea. Founded by the Phoenicians as Malaka in 770 BC, Málaga is considered as one of the oldest cities in the world as well as one of Spain’s economically and cultural emerging cities. Native to the famous painter Pablo Picasso, the city offers 28 museums, two of which, the Museo Picasso Málaga and Picasso Birthplace Museum, reveal the life of Picasso. There are also three major events in Spain that are held here: the Málaga Fair (Feria de Málaga), the Holy Week and the Málaga Film Festival.

The Mediterranean climate provides a perfect environment to enjoy the city with an average of 300 days of sunshine, beautiful beaches and friendly locals to meet walking down the streets.

This Spanish language school in Malaga is located in a peaceful residential area, just 15 minutes by bus from the city center and a 10 minute walk to the beaches.
