The Cahtedral has many chapels, but the most beautiful chapel in the church is the Chapel of the Encarnacion, which is located at the back of the main altar. The altarpiece is made of marble and there are four large Corinthian columns. The design was created by Ventura Rodriguez. The sculptures were done by Juan de Salazar Palomino. In the center the sculptures show the Annunciation. On one side is the statue of San Ciriaco, and on the other side is the statue of Santa Paula, both of whom are the patron saints of Malaga. On top of the altar is the symbol of the Trinity, and on either side there are sculptures of two angels. On the right side is the tomb of Bishop Molina Lario, made of white marble and also created by Salazar. It shows the bishop praying. On the left side is the tomb of Bishop Bernardo Manrique, showing his image kneeling and praying. On top of his image are images of the Crucifixion, the Virgin Mary, and St. John Evangelist. The stained glass windows of the chapel show the Annunciation.
