Very impressed with Malaga Cathedral and the shop. Many of the chapels had information written in English which was very helpful. The choir stalls were a particular joy as were the organ pipes. The only downside was that you could not purchase a ticket for the tower at the Cathedral. It took us ages to find the Bishops House where... More

The ticket costs 3 Euros for students, 5 for adults. Very calm, huge inside. On the outside you can walk around in the peark surrounding the cathedral and you can visit the cathedral Museum as well.

This cathedral is not one of Spain's most inspiring churches but it does have features of note. The intricate carving of the choir stalls was most impressive. Interestingly, the money that was set aside for the building of the tower on the west side was redirected by a bishop to help fund the American War of Independence against the British.

A pretty cathedral and would be a shame to miss if visiting Malaga old town. But not sure whether worth the €5 entrance fee. The castle was much better value.

A most interesting visit rated at 4.5. Entry of 5Euro is quite reasonable and some of the artwork is deeply interesting. A section closed to the public diminishes an otherwise perfect score.

Well worth a visit in Malaga's old town.Apparently some of the money put aside to finish the Cathedral was redirected to help the Americans in their War of Independence against the British.

Well worth spending the entrance fee to this magnificent building. Even if you are not religious, the architecture is breathtaking. This very gothic cathedral would make a good backdrop for an old-fashioned horror movie as well as being a house of God. Enjoyed the visit very much.

As part of a walking tour the guide explained the history and architecture of this building, pointing out that one of the towers isn't finished and its Moorish history. Its not really easy to avoid in Malaga which means there are always a lot of people about.As in other similar churches and cathedrals, the general hum of tourists does take... More

Large and very interesting exterior. Often people skip the outside of buildings and dive in and that would be a shame here.
