Dropped in for a liturgical service which was dignified, interesting and revealing. It was quite well attended with the elderly very much in the majority. The sea, sand and sangria brigade from the Costa and youths were not very much in evidence. The building, which replaced a Moorish Mosque, is renaissance in style and dates back to the mid sixteenth... More

Wanted to see the inside of the church but it was closed. Went for the christmas display at the back. Fantastic models of the christmas story. Worth a visit. Probably only on display in december.

To see this beautiful cathedral for 5€ was absolutely nothing. The architecture is amazing, breath taking and unbelievable. The high ceilings are ornate and surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows. It holds a double organ, ancient paintings, many carvings and 2 carved marble pulpits. I´m not religious really but so pleased I visited.

They were having a service today. Two sets of double sided organ pipes and Our Lady of the Anguishes (The Pieta) by Pissani Bros from 1802.

It is fantastic how they could build in the earlier days! Nice to have some time for contemplation when visiting big cities! But one have to think about where all this come from! Probably much of it is stolen in South America 1000 years ago?

We found it the highlight of Malaga. A successful duo of balance and detail, such a hard combination to achieve - it is usually just too rich or too many different styles are combined. Not in this case. It is the middle part that is the most interesting. Take a good look while you are still outside on the towers... More

We have visited numerous cathedrals etc over the pat 30 years and Malaga cathedral is without doubt one of the most beautiful and atmospheric ones we have visited. Superb roofs, alters and a fantastic huge organ. Although we are not religious a visit is a must.

I've been in many of Europe's finest cathedrals and from the outside this didn't look like it was going be anything special. However, I went inside while a service was in progress and I was totally blown away by the decor inside. Admittedly there is some clever uplighting to enhance it but even so I was very impressed. Free entry... More
