San Fernando is a fun town to walk through as it is so full of life. This school is opposite the swimming pool and very close to the Park of San Fernando and the church. There are also 3 shopping centers in San Fernando, Ronda, CC San Fernando and Bellavista (see my tips) and supermarkets, including Eurospar and Mercadona.
