WELCOME TO MARBELLA
Learn Spanish this summer in Marbella, the undisputed highlight of the Costa del Sol, is an exclusive Mediterranean resort town with some of the best beaches in Europe. Its beautiful parks and gardens, top-notch golf courses and picturesque old quarter, or "Casco Antiguo," make Marbella a relaxing yet stimulating place to learn Spanish.
Due to its geographical positioning and the mountain range that surrounds it, Marbella enjoys a unique micro-climate. The temperature is mild throughout the year - there are neither harsh winters nor suffocating summers - and you can sunbathe almost everyday from June to September.
Best of all, Marbella is just a short ride away from all the important cities of Andalusia. Discover the new Picasso museum in Malaga, the artist's birthplace; see the incomparable Mezquita in Cordoba; or dedicate a couple of weekends to get to know Sevilla and Granada, two of the most attractive cities in Spain.
Old Town & Plaza de los Naranjos
Marbella's historic center, or "casco antiguo," is characterized by white-washed streets, historic churches and squares, and a growing number of boutiques and shops. Its core, the "Plaza de los Naranjos" (Orange Tree Square, circa 1485) contains 16th century structres like the town hall and a pretty chapel. Partially enclosed by an ancient Arab wall, this area is the perfect place to breath in Marbella's history while enjoying a refreshment at a terrace cafe.
