Malaga 17


 Dominican College’s Centenary year continued with the Spanish Department’s trip to the city of Málaga, on the coast of Andalucia in Southern Spain.

Twenty two GCSE Spanish students, under the leadership of Ms O’Connor and Mr Canning, stayed in a hotel close to the beach and the centre of the city and enjoyed four days of activities, cultural visits and fun!
The group enjoyed a guided tour of Málaga, taking in the famous sights including the Port, Cathedral, Roman amphitheatre, Moorish fortress and Picasso’s birthplace.
We visited the famous Spanish department store, El Corte Inglés, and narrow streets of the Cathedral area with its typical Spanish architecture.

On the Sunday we had an early start to go to the Selwo Marina Park where we saw displays of penguins, exotic birds, dolphins and sea lions.
Our evenings were spent bowling and dining in a pizzeria with beautiful views of the famous port of Málaga.
All our pupils thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to visit Spain and soak up the atmosphere
of Andalucia, not to mention the warm Mediterranean weather!
