“Malaga Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is really worth a visit. My daughter described it as "A bit bling, Mum!" as the place is dripping with gold. She was a little perturbed by some of the rather gruesome pictures of matyrdoms. She was also somewhat amused by the fact that the lady at the entrance was going to charge her half price to get in, because she thought she was under 14 - she was actually 23! But looks very young for her age. We visitedf again recently with a friend who was over from the UK, she found it very interesting.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Compared to other cathedrals in Andalucia (particulalry Seville) the Malaga cathedral is quite disappointing as it is mostly empty with few decorations.

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. The art work is beautiful! The statues stunning! I was truly taken aback by the beauty of this building and it's contents.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The work of art in the Cathedral is absolutely fantastic, but yet such a place of peace. Do not miss it if you visit Malaga, whatever your religion
