Cervantes International in Malaga

Pedregalejo's beaches are located just a two minute's walk from the school, offering students boundless opportunities for recreation and relaxation.
The neighborhood's open-air bars and restaurants provide a lively atmosphere and a wide range of excellent fresh seafood at low prices.
