A lot bigger inside then we expected. Lots of information given about the history of the Cathedral. You can tell the Cathedral is well maintained and kept well. Hard to believe this was built this years ago. When in Malaga we recommend you go and see this attraction as it isn't too badly priced. This is in a fantastic location!

A magnificent building in the hearof old Malaga. Pricey entry at 5 euro but worth. Sit back and admire.

Beautiful marble on the front entrance. It is hard to believe that people were able to build such a large structure so many years ago. Much to see. Many chapels. Some of the art is a bit graphic.

Visited the cathedral on Easter Sunday. It was the rain that took us inside but we are very glad we did visit.

I visited this Cathedral just before Christmas last year,The nativity scene outside was a taste of things to come WOW prior to entering the Cathedral you were greeted by beautiful trees filled with oranges, once inside another nativity scene, everything you come to expect at this time of year STUNNING. A service was in progress while in there and all... More

It's a big beautiful church, lovely in the day or night, sit in one of the surrounding bars and watch the colours of the church change at dusk, just lovely! ps it's closed like a lot of things in Spain on Sundays

very shocked to discover the high price - €8, I think just to enter the cathedral. It's a functioning church so I don't understand the charge. No historical information available. I would advice going just during mass times as presumably there is no cost then.

You can easily visit a lot of cathedrals but Malaga's is well worth a visit. There are some fine sculptures and paintings in it, so if you can put up with beating away the hoards of beggars on the way in, it's well worth a diversion and 20 minutes out of the sun.
