Entrance is free, and the impressive cathedral is worth a visit. Too much gold and fancy stuff, I think, but the locals really care for and use the church. We saw old women confessing their sins, and a young man lying flat on the floor, praying.

They call it the Lady with the Crooked Arm, was originally a Mosque - should visit to see the conversion to a Cathedral and where it got stuck.

I'm not into the sight seeing thing but this was simply amazing. I stared open jawed at it from the outside and I was speechless while walking around inside. It's a must see in the area. The organ was particularly impressive.

Go at a quite time and just enjoy the and reflect in its total magnificence. You cannot miss it right in the middle of the old town and well worth at least half an hour of anyone's time.

This cathedral is huge, was a bit surprised that we had to pay 5 euros each to enter. It must have the biggest organ I have seen.

We visited around 6pm on a Wednesday. The place is absolutely stunning and takes your breath away with it's architecture & intricate chapels. There are information signs at each one giving a brief explanation on what's inside. There was a mass going on when we were in and this gave shivers up my spine as we walked around. The place...

The cathedral is open until 6pm, closes a bit early for spanish habits. You have to pay entrance. The cathedral is worth visiting, including the small garden around

The Cathedral is definitely worth a visit. It is in an imposing building both inside and out. Even though some of the Baroque alterpieces are not to my personal taste I can appreciate the skill and craftsmanship on display and there is enough artwork to suit everyone's tastes. It lies at the heart of the old town and is a... More

This cathedral is definitely a site to see, the architecture inside is beautiful. The entrance price is too high however.

Set in the heart of Malaga old town, the Cathedral is a tranquil building well worth a visit. It costs €5 to get in but if this goes towards the upkeep it us worth every cent. Not very busy when I visited, it has beautiful stained glass windows bad dozens of oil paintings, madonnas, silver and gold. And it's quite... More
