|Res Fee (from):||£826.00|
|Non Res Fee:||£54.00 What's included?|
Europe is replete with many great but little known cities. This selection will demonstrate that equally rich histories as well as astonishing cultural treasures can be found away from the familiar ‘honeypot’ city destinations. From origins to the present day the history of each city will be told. Famous (and infamous) inhabitants will be encountered along the way and naturally the architecture, art and music will be explored in some detail.
This ancient Spanish port city has ancient foundations predating the Romans. The city is also the birthplace of the twentieth century’s greatest artist - Pablo Picasso. Today its historic treasures and museums are often overlooked in a dash to get to holiday destinations across Andalusia. To those who want to experience it, Malaga offers a delicious blend of Roman, Moorish, Baroque and Modern culture.
This course is part of Week One of the Dillington Summer School. Residents arrive for Tea on Sunday 5 August and depart after breakfast on Saturday 11 August.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again.
