“Beautiful church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Nice on those warm middays. Quite a beautiful church with lots to see, like the double organ and the religious art pieces in the alcoves. It will take only 20 minutes or so.

“A rather normal cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The cathedral is nice but its historical location from Phoenicians times through Greek, Roman, Visigothic and Islamic periodes could be envisaged. The historical city of Malaga is beautiful and full of athmosphaere.

“malaga cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A fantastic place well worth the effort. Set in the middle of Malaga, the cathedral has imposing spires, and faces a small plaza buzzing with cafes and bars for a well earned drink after. Whether or not you are religious, this building and its ambience will inspire you. It is huge and has many statues and paintings. The beautiful statues that are carried in procession are housed at the back, the floats are amazing, made with gold and silver. To me the piece de resistance was the dark hand carved choir stalls.... Awesome. You can have guided tours or rent tapes in your own language to guide yourself. Well worth a visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Big spacious with many interesting things to see. It is also very cool in summer so a good place to escape the heat for 1-2 hours
