Malaga Cathedral, Malaga

Discover Renaissance beauty in the heart of Andalucía at Malaga Cathedral. Constructed in the 16th century, the cathedral is referred to by locals as “La Manguita,” as it boasts only one high tower instead of the traditional two-tower design. Tour the cathedral’s many chapels, admiring grand artwork and details like the ornate Neoclassical altarpiece depicting the patron saints of Málaga and the carved mahogany, 17th-century choir stalls. Visit the museum on the second floor to see ceremonial treasures and important artifacts. Make Malaga Cathedral a part of your Malaga vacation plans using our Malaga travel route planner .

  • Beautiful cathedral, which is worth a visit! The audio guide is included in the mandatory entrance fee, but the told stories are only telling descriptive facts about the architecture ("the column is in the style xx" "The upper window dates from the year xxxx") instead of revealing the historical background of the church.
  • Audio guide is very informative and the attention to detail in the displays and building itself is perfect. It is a little pricey If you are over 25 but still worth a visit to this piece of history.
  • Absolutely stunning Cathedral. Well worth a visit. 6 euros entry with audio guide.
  • most beautiful cathedral I visited in Andalucia. Just a bit too crowded
  • Lovely outside. Lovely inside. Interesting the picture of Saint Paul.
