After walking around the outside, our tour entered the Cathedral. Our guide took us through most of the 20 chapels as well as the choir area.The architecture, marble, wood and precious metals made the place gleem. It is built on what was formerly an arab mosque. Don't miss this.

Nice building inside with great detail. €5 entrance fee can spend as little or as much time inside as you like. Watch out is there are many beggars outside the doors asking for cash

I doubt if you could visit Málaga without visiting the cathedral - and if you're fit, you could also climb up to its domes. Inside, it's much as you'd expect of a cathedral of its vintage, plus it provides a welcome cool and peace from the outside sun

I felt this cathedral was worth a visit and we had a wonderful guide who spent a lot of time with us. This was just before Palm Sunday and the cathedral was being readied for that service and Holy Week. We did try to get in on Palm Sunday but it was closed to the public at the time we... More

I was surprised and astounded particularly with the interior of this beautifully adorned building. The roof is breathtaking with it's seemingly endless vaulting and was only a little detracted by the ,what seems like, innevitable netting that protects visitors from falling debris. The scale and opulence of the Cathedral for a relatively small city was unexpectedly grand and I recommend... More

I found this cathedral to be better than the reviews led me to expect. It's more attractive inside than on the outside. The organ and choir loft are especially impressive.

Amazing and wonderful cathedral to visit - probably not as good as the cathedral in Seville but worth a visit. Although I'feel that cathedrals do look the same inside but it is always worth a visit no matter what.

This is an impressive cathedral, huge and imposing inside. A beautiful building and worth a look if you are fan of churches and cathedrals. The surrounding areas are excellent too
