The procession goes all around the Old City of Malaga, with a marching band... More

A must visit for visitors to Malaga. Standing outside the church Sargado Carazon you are amazed at the decorative architecture of the building and it's size, it just seems to rise above the city to the heavens. Inside it is more beautiful and breathtaking and a has a feeling of calm. Not to be missed

Every time I come to Malaga I mean to write a review of this beautiful church. I always go to Mass here during my stay. It has Gothic style architecture and the stain glass windows are awesome, particularly the Rose window. There is a magnificent organ and we were lucky to visit during the day while there was a wedding.... More

The architecture of this church is beautiful and it is located at the back of the Carmen Thyssen Museum. It was built for the Jesuits. I recommend this to every visitor who comes to Malaga.
