Hidden well within the streets of Málaga lies this beautiful church. I was purposefully looking for it and almost passed by, because it was hidden in a small side street. But it's worth looking for, very gorgeous and with pretty details.

Very cool building close to Hotel Itaca on calle Compañia and almost opposite the Canela Fina restaurant. Looks great in sunlight and you can get a great photo if you you can avoid the beggars and street hawkers hanging around the gates

You could walk through Malaga and miss this beautiful church. The outside viewis outstanding. But wait until you get inside. It is soooo beautiful, you can take photos - no flash. And If you are there on Sunday you can attend Mass!! Amazing. So,if are in Malaga and you miss it, you must return to Malaga. It will be worth... More

This is a beautiful and well maintained Church. On the day I walked into the courtyard, a wedding reception and ceremony was under preparation. The church offers many opportunities for photography of the sharp features.

If you are going to Málaga at the summer, you can hide yourself of the sun here. It is in the center of the city. Don't forget to check it's lights if you are here by night!

As was said before, it is beautiful both on the outside and on the inside and also has 2 awesome orange trees in front that have a heavenly smell. The interior is very luminous and pleasant and I was pretty impressed. Entered during Saturday mass and as a sinner that I am, I took a silent picture.

Beautiful church inside and out. Sadly we didn't get back to photograph it, as we happened to wander by when a service was on. Located off the beaten track but easy enough to find with a map and well worth doing so!

The most beautiful part of the Sacred Heart Church are the impressive stained glass windows in the church. They were all made by Maumejean, the famous French firm. The stained glass windows feature the saints.

Popped in for a quick look and that,s all it was. I am a Christian and this was just the run of the mill so to speak. But in the sun everything looks better.
