Stunning facade framed by orange trees (that are lit up over the festive period!) reasonable entry fee with audio guide included. Very informative audio guide. Impressive architecture and lovely wooden carvings in the choir section. Worth a visit if you're in Malaga.

In spite of the entrance fer, an impressive interior with the various chappels and the decorated ceilings. Would be an experience to listen an organ consert. Recommendable!

If you go on Sunday no entry fee. Being Catholic we did attend Sunday services here. The building like most old Spanish Cathedrals is impressive. I was hoping for more music during the service. I kind of thought the side Chapels were as impressive as...More
