As all churches this one has also beautiful architecture. Visiting is possible and free of charge. Always cool inside, handy with the Spanish weather :).

Having been unable to go into the cathedral because of a celebration event taking place, we wandered around and decided to try this church to get out of the heat and noise of Malaga.

This church is an amazing place. Like all the churches in Europe it is painted and decorated beautifully. I could not stop looking up at the magnificent painting and wondering how long each took to do. We needed more time here than the tour allowed.

The Iglesia de Los Martires is one of the most impressive churches in Malaga because it has many images of the Virgin Mary. Many of these images are dressed very beautifully and the people who worship in the church are very proud of how them take care of the images and the church.

I went to the cathedral first where I paid five euros, this one was free and I liked it much better, a lot older and more beautiful chapels and saints, very beautiful and more colonial

Accessible, beautiful chapels. An amazing ceiling and a beautiful alter. There is a deep feeling within this church, we both felt something here even though we are not church attendees.
