School Trips to Malaga
Malaga, on southern Spain’s Costa Del Sol, is one of the oldest Mediterranean ports, founded by the Phoenicians. While it is now better known for its beaches and high-rise hotels, there are plenty of educational options for school trips to Malaga. Allow students to explore the renaissance cathedral of La Manquita, the former fishermen's quarter and a popular museum celebrating the birthplace of the influential artist Picasso, whilst high above the city of Malaga, you will also find the spectacular Moorish fortifications of Alcazaba and the ruins of Gibralfaro Castle.
School trips to Malaga are a great alternative to busier Spanish cities such as Madrid or Barcelona. Part of the Andalucia region, Malaga is a relatively quiet city offering a laid back "Costa del Sol" atmosphere with equal amounts of art, culture and attractions to other major cities in Spain.
If you're looking to experience more of Spain, Malaga is a great base for students to explore the nearby cultural city of Granada, which can be included as a day excursion due to its close proximity, or as part of a two city tour.

Picasso wanted his work to be present in the city of his birth and as a result, the museum was built. The collection includes a wide variety of works dating from 1892-1972.
Castillo de Gibralfaro & Alcazaba
Sitting high on a hill overlooking the city, the magnificent castle of Gibralfaro dates from the 10th century. The Alcazaba (citadel in Arabic), dates from the Muslim period and is located at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill.
La Rosaleda Stadium
Visit some of the most exclusive areas of the home of Malaga FC and relive some of the team’s finest moments.
While it takes years of practise to perfect the dance form of Flamenco, students can practice this wonderful dance in the most famous Flamenco centre in Malaga.
La Manquita Cathedral
Built on the site of a former mosque, Malaga’s cathedral was built over a period of more than 150 years starting in 1528. It is nick-named La Manquita which translates roughly as ‘one-armed woman’. The original plans for the building allowed for 2 towers, however lack of funding resulted in only 1 being completed.
Carmen Thyssen Museum
Art students will enjoy the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga, which displays the works of prominent 19th century Andalusian artists.
Perfect for relaxing and games, groups can visit Malagueta Beach on the Malaga coast. As well as swimming and leisure activities, groups can take a picture with the “Malagueta” letter sculpture.
Tivoli World is the largest family amusement park on the Costa del Sol. Groups will enjoy its fantastic attractions, theatrical performances and buzzing atmosphere.
With its history as a former fishermen’s quarter, El Palo has now turned into a bustling neighbourhood, famed amongst locals and tourists for its food scene. Groups can enjoy a stroll across the promenade and refreshing dip in the sea at the neighbourhood’s beautiful beach.
La Malagueta Bullring
Malaga is famous for the La Malagueta Bullring. A cultural asset of Spain, the controversial bull ring offers more than just bullfighting, as it is used for concerts and food fairs throughout the year. The bull ring is also home to the Antonio Ordóñez Bullfighting Museum, featuring historic costumes and posters.
