5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We were taken here by welovemalaga tours. We truly enjoyed every single chapel, specially if you are into religious art

“Over the top ornamentation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Having visited Malaga Cathedral, which I loved, I found this church a bit too highly ornamented with vast amounts of gilt. Just not to my taste!

“One of My Favorite Churches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I recently went to hear Mass at this church. After Mass I looked around at the different altars and admired how the various images of the Virgin Mary were attired and how the chapels were decorated. It is a very beautiful church in the center of Malaga and should be seen by people who visit the city.

“Church of the Martyrs Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I love history and visiting these historical sites, it really does add immensely to the quality of your trip to hire a very good guide. We used Andalucia tours and it was well worth it!

“A Rococo shrine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Situated in a street of the same name, the Church of the Martyrs is a must for anybody fond of "church crawling". It is a blaze of gold leaf and dark paintings, and holds a number of the images mounted on "tronos" for the Semana Santa processions, at which Málaga excels (some "tronos" require over 200 men to carry them!)
