A pretty good European cathedral, definitely in the Spanish style, full of gold leaf and statues. There are nice explanations of the various chapels around the perimeter, in English. Not expensive to get into (a few euros). No toilets inside though, so be prepared.

Lovely cathedral and nice visit - very much similar to other cathedrals. However they could be more staff to tell you things!

Dull cathedral with an interesting exterior and nice garden. Much better places to visit in Malaga. But okay to take a walk around the garden and enjoy the shade.

Worth a visit to see this stunning cathedral in the heart of the city...and perfect for cooling down! The architecture and ornate details are incredible. There are plenty of candles to light and say a quiet prayer if you wish.

it is a nice cool place to spend a relaxing half hour wandering round, maybe less than half an hour but it gets you out of the heat and it is very peaceful

Well worth going inside (it's only a few euros) as it's quite spectacular and magnificent (and cool!)

Genuinely impressive cathedral, free to enter, with some impressive works of art - Enrique Simonet's 'The Beheading of Saint Paul' in particular.
