My wife and I spent a lovely hour in the majestic Malaga Cathedral (erected during the first half of the sixteenth century although work on it continued until the eighteenth century and, even at that, the one of its towers still remains unfinished). This site was built over the former mosque and combines several architectural styles. The two organs built... More

From Palm Sunday to Sunday of Resurrection, the Cathedral of Málaga is where Easter turns to be the central Focus and the center of all events. It is already happening right now...

Although quite eclectic in style, the cathedral impresses visitors with its massive size and some extremely good and valuable paintings.

I believe we paid about 5 euro each to go in. We felt it was worth the cost. It was quite beautiful. There were several large groups of school children the day we went so it was pretty packed but still was enjoyable and worth the visit. Side note: I always make bathroom comments, maybe we have small bladders! There... More

Arriving by sea from a cruise ship is the best way to see Malaga, & when you get there, the Cathedral is an easy walk from the terminal. Well worth a visit right in the centre of the cirty

We paid our entry free not realising the cathedral was about to close, so we had looked around for half an hour before being rushed out (NB check times before you go in). It is very impressive inside with some lovely artwork. We enjoyed the exterior gardens and architecture at our leisure.

We walked around the outside to see the architecture, it is outstanding, we did not go into the cathedral as there appeared to be a service on. Just to stand and look outside it is well worth a visit.

The cathedral of Malaga is one of the biggest in Spain I think. It is an impressive building with one instead of two towers, wich is one of its distinctive caracters. It is very beautiful inside and free to visit.
