“Interesting church located into the calm old town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2015

No doubt the ''Iglesia Mayor de la Incarnacion'' is the most beautiful church in the city, to be located in the heart of Casco Antiguo or more commonly the old town, here in the Plaza de la Iglesia (Church Square) the tourist feels like back in time, beautiful is the external facade that recalls the Hispanic style of the past centuries. Spacious interior but not noteworthy, some painting but is the usual church .. Must see.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2015

We went to a Sunday mass and came across a local who assisted us with directions to this church. When we told her we were still very early, she quickly responded that if you want a seat you better get there early. Sure enough the church filled quickly beyond seated capacity, and parishioners began opening foldable chairs in the aisles to be able to sit, but many had to remain standing. The priest delivered a dynamic and inspiring sermon! Lots of history in the small courtyard just outside of the church.

“Nice old church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2014

It's a lovely old church, with lots of old statues build with a local air. No entry fee. If you'll visit Marbella, be sure to add this on your checklist.
