More than 3,000 years of history have passed since Málaga’s establishment by the Phoenicians up to achieving the beautiful, friendly and cosmopolitan city that enchants tourists from all over the world today.
The Roman Theatre and garum (Roman fish paste) pools will take you to the times of Roman Hispania. Meanwhile, the Alcazaba is the most beautiful living example of the period of Muslim domination. Experience the reconquest (La Reconquista) by the Catholic Monarchs from the Santuario de la Victoria (the Shrine of Victory). Or stroll along Calle San Agustín, formerly known as the Calle de los Caballeros, the street of the knights since they settled on this street, with the Palacio de Buenavista as its most significant feature.
Visit the Cathedral and see real works of art, some holly, which have survived to this day in celebrations such as the Semana Santa de Málaga (Holy Week Fiestas).
Stroll down Málaga’s main street and learn more about the Marqués de Larios. Arrive at the Plaza de la Constitución, where most of the city’s social events are held. Admire buildings of different ages and be enthralled by the stories that the city can tell. Text by www.malagaturismo.com
Excursiones desde Málaga
During the courses, we organize plenty of excursions to nearby places with the intention of giving the students the opportunity to get to know more of Spain.
All these excursions are integrated in the academic program and the highlight topics are covered in class.
All of them are carried out by a Coordinator/teacher that will be explaining, in an entertaining and amusing manner, all the important historical aspects of the city.
Nerja or Ronda are some of the destinations.
Important: In some cases, this may include overnight hotel stays.
Visitas culturales en Málaga
At Instituto San Fernando, we realize that the success of a Spanish language program is not solely dependent on the quality of the classes, but also the development of a cultural activities/free time program which fully immerses the student in the country’s culture.
The cultural activities component of our programs is designed to provide our students with a vision of Spanish culture and society in the most complete and integrated form possible. It is based on diverse criteria, including our high academic standards as well as the personal interests of the students.
All activities are carefully planned, discussed before and after in the classroom, include the appropriate materials and are accompanied by a specialized professor-mentor. We not only teach culture in the classroom; we allow each student to experience the most important aspects of Spanish society through a carefully structured program of cultural visits.
The Alcazaba, The Cathedral, the Gibralfaro Castle, the Roman Theater, La Malageta beach or walking along Calle Larios are some of our proposals.
