The subtle scents of the Andalusian gardens, the sweetness of the sea breezes, the calm of the white lanes, fresh gazpacho served on tables of refined mosaics…in the shade of the crenellated ramparts of the Alcazaba…time has just stopped. Rare and precious moments…Welcome to Málaga!
It is in a most beautiful setting that you will learn Spanish. The birth city of Picasso, this vast completely white agglomeration, overhung by the Gibralfaro, the « hill of the lighthouse », crowned with fortifications from the 14th century, will offer you a magnificent symphony of colours, flavours, landscapes and unforgettable moments. At the mouth of the Guadalmedina river, opposite the Moroccan coast and at the opening of the major roads that run down from the high lands of Granada and the Guadalquivir river, Málaga has been able to take advantage of its privileged situation, in order to become the second city in Andalusia after Seville. The former fishing port has given way to a growing port activity and the sectors of the hotel industry, commerce, transports and new information technologies have experienced, in turn, a remarkable development. Today, Málaga is the main city on the Mediterranean coast of the region. But if the south of Spain has often denatured its coastline in favour of mass tourism.
Málaga has managed to remain a nonchalant and hospitable city which has made an open-air work of art of its past full of developments. Founded by the Phoenicians, Málaga was embellished by the greatest civilizations, the Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths and Ummayads. A superimposing of histories which gives Málaga an impressive cultural and architectural heritage. Then, when the mildness of the Andalusian evenings sets in, a air of celebration spreads into every street. Cafés, restaurants and clubs contagiously spread their spontaneity and good humour among the inhabitants and tourists. Whether you prefer the peace and quiet of a patio, the passion of flamenco or the dancefloors of trendy discos, the atmosphere will carry you right through the night. Málaga …«una experiencia sublime».
