Yes, we have said that many times on our travels to any parts of the world. But the Malaga cathedral is definitely worth a visit. The locals call it the " one armed lady" because the second tower was never finished. A strange sight indeed.

Visiting the Malaga cathedral offers views of wonderful art work and architecture. La Manquita may not be the most impressive cathedral in Spain, but it is one of Malaga's best sites to visit.

If you need a bit of calm time between the bars in the old town and cocktails in the port then the cathedral is well worth a visits it's free and cool in there with some fantastic paintings and the scale is amazing when you walk in. When standing in front you can see that it is still not finished.

This cathedral is absolutely stunning, inside and out. Be prepared to spend time taking in all the side chapels and beautiful statuary inside. The stained glass is beautiful. Lofty and majestic, this lovely house of worship is an oasis of tranquility in the heart of Málaga. The meager admission fee affords you admission to a small but interesting museum of... More

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.
