We walked into the cathedral which was beautiful and peaceful (and free but not crowded on Sundays) and although we were there a few hours, we could have stayed longer. The faded glory of the place strikes into your soul, and the lack of comercialism (Westminster Abbey, please note) makes you feel closer to the presence of God. If you... More

The size is absolutely unbelievable. Prices are reasonable, especially the sudent discount. More information or brochures would be great

My first view of Malaga Cathedral was from the balcony of our apartment overlooking the Port across the water to its floodlit form rising above the city skyline. The Cathedral has one one unfinished tower and is known locally as "La Manquita" meaning "The One Armed Lady". I was surprised after negotiating the narrow streets of the old town, how... More

On the day we visited one disgruntled American was complaining loudly about the Euro 5.00 charge per adult and declaring "no wonder the Catholic Church is the richest in the world". If he chose not to visit he missed out on a truly amazing experience because the huge vaulted ceiling had to be seen to be appreciated, the gorgeous stained... More

My trip to the cathedral would have been greatly enhanced by an information leaflet. Each of the chapels has a description in front of it, but difficult to read if more than one person at a time, and frequently poorly translated. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a beautiful cathedral with many lovely features. The stained glass windows are some of the best and ornate that I have seen and there are some lovely statues and figures carved from stone and some in what looks like gold or certainly gold coloured. The main altar is enchanting and in the centre of the cathedral is an... More

We visited on a Sunday with no entrance fee charged. The inside of this cathedral is beautiful, with extensive wood carvings and a variety of alcoves containing small chapels. Well worth a visit in the tourist heart of Malaga

We had to pay 5 euros to enter the cathedral. Although the inside is beautiful, we find it too much. A church is a public place, so it should be free.

The first thing you notice is the height. Malaga cathedral is elegant and tall, which also translates in to a light filled space due to the high windows. I was impressed by the design and feel is the main chamber, which was solemn despite being well lighted. Be sure to spend some time admiring the wood carvings. They are almost... More
