A free guide on the historical heritage of the Malaga municipality of Marbella will be distributed free to schools by the City Council.

As announced this morning, Thursday, June 16, by Angeles Muñoz, the mayor of the Malaga city of Marbella, the City Council plans to edit a guide on the historical heritage of Marbella. It has been prepared by Professor Salvador Raya, from the IES Victoria Kent, and will be distributed free of charge in all the Secondary schools of the municipality.

Ms Muñoz made a visit to the site today, together with Carmen Diaz, the general director of the branch. The mayor pointed out that: “it is a magnificent initiative that is very useful for teachers, and that brings the cultural richness of our city to the students in a playful and didactic way”.

Likewise, she highlighted “the commitment to quality teaching of a reference space in the educational field” which, she specified, “this year expands its training offer of the health cycle with the incorporation of a new intermediate degree of Pharmacy and Parapharmacy”.

Lourdes Iglesias, the deputy director of the IES, explained that: “the students, from 1st to 4th of ESO, have welcomed this innovative proposal with great enthusiasm because the book includes a notebook in which they can write down everything that catches their attention as they visit”.

Professor Raya indicated that “Marbella has a legacy that allows students to discover all the stages, from prehistory to Dali. Passing through the Roman era, the Middle Ages, and industrialisation, and it is very satisfying to see how they are motivated by a book that aims to encourage interest in the history of their city”.
