A must visit when in Malaga - just be careful you don't clash with mass/service time as they seem to restrict entry at some stages. Inside is so impressive - you need plenty of time to wander around

After missing Seville cathedral due to a combination of long queues and a coach to meet I was looking forward to seeing Malaga cathedral. After some coffee and churros in the square close by we went in. I found it absolutely beautiful and very peaceful. The stained glass is gorgeous. Well worth the €5 each.

A must when you visit Malaga ... Beautiful inside and out ... Quirky unfinished tower .... A peaceful oasis in a busy city.

The cathedral is Malaga. It is massive, impressive and awe inspiring. I could say all roads in Malaga lead to the Cathedral. While we wee there we used this as our point of reference and it worked well. The square, gardens and restaurants around the Cathedral are ... it is a lively place both during the day and night. A...

great and impressive - with its unfinished tower, in a small square, not far from the Plaza Marina and the park. Tax fee is not expensive.

Situated cheek by jowl with more modern Malaga, this is a little gem, with fascinating architecture, well worth a visit.

A fairly typical Catholic Cathedral, with magnificent chapels, carvings (both stone and wood) and general décor. Cool inside and peaceful, it is a delightful haven from the fierce heat of the midday sun.

This is a beautiful Cathedral, set in the centre of town, and no visit to Malaga should go without a visit here...Religious or not..... Its a fantastic monument and should be admired for what it is....and the locals love the place, Its always open for prayer, which seems a little strange as tourists are everywhere taking pictures right next to...

We had a look around here for a while, it has lots of intricate carvings and statues, If I remember though most of the explanations are in Spanish which, if you don't speak the lingo makes it a bit difficult to learn about everything. like all the Cathedrals I have visited, I am impressed by the beauty and quality of...

A must if you go to malaga. The cathedral was beautiful! My girlfriend said it was like a tardis, on the he outside it does look big but we were blown away by the inside. Massive, peaceful and lovely. Photos being allowed- obviously no flash, it was a great little exploration. Unfortunately when we went we were unable to see... More
