Lovely cathedral.

To be honest: Malaga is not THAT interesting. The cathedral is one of the spots worth visiting. You can conclude a complete visit in less than an hour. There are unfortunately no (audio) guides available. The immense doors in the front of the cathedral are impressive. Entry fee is acceptable and we included the entrance to the home (huge) of...

Its really a very good example of architecture and it contributes a lot to the impression about Malaga itself. Its better to choose time in the afternoon when usually there are less people.

Our hotel room overlooked the cathedral, so it called for an early visit. We were not disappointed. Grand without being grandiose, dark without being depressing, this cathedral is the heart of the city. The Bishops Palace across the street contains a magnificent exhibition of African artifacts brought back by missionary bishops and priests. The fine goldwork is amazing.

The church is still being completed, but it is stunning nonetheless. The outside is impressive and worthy of a visit even if you don't go inside. The inside contains beautiful designs and art in different sections of the church. It also has an insanely large organ that took my breath away.

Actually when you step inside, for a moment you feel nothing, I mean really nothing! Everything is big and the only little point in between is you!

I wonder at the stonesmiths then & now. Whilst we were there two men were repairing the stone on the external part of the main entrance. I'm amazed at the beauty of these buildings and the fine art for all to see

We thought the entrance fee was a bit high (€5.00 pp) it was well worth it. It's a beautiful Cathedral! It's really impressive on the inside.
