Students from secondary schools in five European countries visited Malaga at the end of last year as part of an Erasmus+ project, cofinanced by the European Union, entitled Our Diverse Cultural Heritage for European Unity.

The students from the United Kingdom, Finland, Germany, Italy and Croatia were hosted by the IES Huelin secondary school in Malaga on the first leg of the project.

The visitors and their hosts took part in activities related to cultural themes of art and monuments.

The students showed a presentation of how art, architecture and monuments have influenced their cultural heritage and examined their differences and similarities in international groups.

The visit also included trips to the dolmens and the municipal museum in Antequera, Archidona, the Museo de Málaga, the historic city centre and the Museo Ruso in Malaga and the Alhambra and the Albaicín neighbourhood in Granada.

"It should be noted the skills gained by students from this type of projects are not only academic but also social, civic and personal competencies required for life-long learning," said the project coordinator in Malaga, Emilio Guzmán Gil.

The next meeting of the group will be held in Tampere (Finland) in February, where nature and landscape will be the main theme.
