You'll not miss this church when you walk around the city of Malaga as this as big as Cathedral in Rome.

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.
