“Amazing construction”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The cathedral in the centrum of Malaga is an amazing building and it is so worth seeing. You can spend a lot of time in this magnificent cathedral. This visit can easily be combined with a shopping tour in the beautiful Malaga city where there is lots of great shops. Bring a camera and some patience to the cathedral, it can be a bit crowded

“Lovely peaceful garden to the side of the cathedral”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Interesting cathedral in central Malaga, beautiful garden to its side with a sculpture exhibition. I went during Mass but if you happen upon it at another time then it's about 5 euros to go inside.

“A must see in Malaga”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We visited on a rainy day, but even in glorious weather visitors to Malaga really must take some time to see this cathedral. We have travelled quite a lot within Europe and this is up there with the best we have visited. The stonework on the ceiling and the wooden choir stalls were particularly beautiful. The cathedral museum is surprisingly small, but is included in the admission price so we couldn't really complain.

“Worth a visit.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Although there is an entry charge I recommend a visit. Do take the optional audio guide which is included in the price as it gives an excellent and informative commentary. The building is huge and, unlike so many catholic churches, the stonework is clean and light in colour which greatly increases its attractiveness.

“An impressive place”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

It was a real pleasure to visit and I really enjoyed the place. The only problem I can see is that to charge £5 to enter a cathedral is just not on. Cathedrals are places of worship and there shouldn't be a charge
