The building is very elaborate with jewelled and highly decorated religious groups of statues in alcoves inside.

Such an imposing spectacular building. A work of art. Well worth visiting. Best to see at night time as it is all lit up.

Attended church service on the Sunday in this great awe inspiring building with its tremendous pillars and arches what a miracle of a construction. For a bit of information for the cultural eagles, this cathedral is a Renaissance church. It is located within the surroundings outlined by a missing portion of the medieval moorish walls the remains of which surround... More

The Cathedral of the Incarnation in Malaga, is one of the major monuments of the Renaissance in Andalusia. It is located within the old fortifications andalusis and forms a large architectural ensemble with Malaga Alcazaba and Gibralfaro Castle. It was built between 1528 and 1782 according to the plans of Diego de Siloam.

A classic and very ornate Cathedral, its vast inside despite having only one side. Clearly seen better days as there is fine netting in the ceiling to catch what is falling from it. Very interesting displays in the little alcoves around the side. Worth a visit.

This is probably one of the most interesting cathedrals after Notre dame. It is in the old town and is worth a visit if you get the chance

The Malaga Cathedral is known as the Cathedral of the Encarnacion because it is dedicated to the Virgin of the Encarnacion. It was built between 1528 and 1782, which is more than 250 years.... and still it is not yet finished. But it is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. It is built on a former... More

Not being a big religious person I tend to just visit the Cathedrals to have a look around. Always enjoy to huge open spaces and would really like to hear the beautiful organs fired up some time.

the cathedral was built over a few hundred years so is a real composite of styles. The ceilings are great to look at but for me it was all the different altar pieces and carvings. These are stunning examples of the work. The choir stalls are currently being renovated but could be seen through the grille and these are absolutly... More
