The Cathedral, like most you visit is very impressive. The entrance fee though is €5 each. The architecture of this building and the peace within I believe is worth it. A strangely laid out Cathedral with lots of naives. and central isle. Modernised to accommodate large crowds with quite delicate speakers etc placed in unobtrusive locations.

The diverse architectures and styles make it quite an interesting and unique place. It's a beautiful cathedral and not as crowded (at least when we went) as some other major ones (e.g. in Seville). We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

This was near our hotel so we walked to the Cathdral, which does not cost anything to go inside. It was beatiful and we took lots of photos.

Built between 1528 and 1782 it was never finished as the money was used to repair a local road. This means that the south tower was not completed which gives it a lopsided look. The building is quite impressive but not as good as either Toledo or Sevilla cathedrals. The painting above the lintel of the central door in the... More

Any stay in Malaga must include a visit to the cathedral. The architecture & content (& refurbishment work) is impressive.

Open to the public, free to walk around and a beautiful building to explore while visiting the old section of Malaga. Watch out(we were told) for the pickpockets on busy days.

This is a huge block of a cathedral, sheer expanses of space the area around the altar was very impressive. Although unfinished on the outside the inside was a baroque tour de force It says no cameras but everyone was clicking all over the place. A nice refreshing break from the heat and sunshine
