Excursion to Cordoba:

180km away from Málaga is the magical city of Cordoba, home to the Guadalquivir river and the legendary Cathedral-Mosque. Cordoba is a city full of history, where there used to be three conflicted cultures living in perfect harmony; the Christians, the Jews and the Arabs. Each corner of the city has a legend, it’s a trip your students can’t miss.

Excursion to Sevilla:

Being the capital of Andalusia and the biggest city in the South, this ancient city (founded by Hercules, according to legend) has numerous monuments from the Roman and Moorish eras. It is also the departure point for Christopher Columbus’ famous voyage in which he discovered the Americas. You cannot miss the opportunity to visit the Giralda – the golden tower – and take a walk around the  iconic Triana neighbourhood.

Excursion to Ronda and other ‘pueblos blancos’:

The province of Málaga is full of villages where all the houses are white; known as the ‘pueblos blancos’ (white villages). These are an integral part of what gives Malaga its Mediterranean feel and certainly worthwhile visiting in person. These villages are truly beautiful, and where time seems to stand still. Perhaps the most famous is Ronda, located on a sheer cliff drop looking out to the rolling countryside. Do not miss!

Gibraltar excursion:

Located in the province of Cádiz at the very tip of Europe, Gibraltar is most well-known for being a spot of British territory on the Iberian peninsula! It is a rich and varied town with beautiful views of the African coast, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

This unique British city is well worth a visit: the city center, the London-style red phone cabins and the San Miguel caves make Gibraltar a very special place. The Rock (as it is known) is also famous because you can also find friendly monkeys that are more than happy to interact with visitors.
