  • You're strolling through the Central streets and you find it yourself, view costs you to take it to the end, impress, well observe that it is not finished. Inside it is majestic, do not miss it if you visit Malaga.

  • I have visited many churches in my life and this is surely not worth paying Euro 5 for. You can see many better churches free of charge all over the world. 
  • The Cathedral is beautiful, both on the outside. one of its towers of the façade wasn't finished, so she takes this little nickname of persons from Malaga. Inside she is amazing, having your altar in the middle of the Cathedral, which is something I had never seen, even visiting this Cathedral.

  • . Get a new view of the city - they have now opened the cathedral roof to visitors! You've seen it from a distance. You've seen peeking over the rooftops as you strolled round the old town. You've seen it close up. You've seen it inside. And now you can see it as you have never seen it before . . . A magnificent cathedral, a landmark visible all over the city, and now you can visit the roof! In the summer months, you can buy a ticket to climb 50 metres up to the domed roof of the cathedral and get a most unusual view both of the cathedral - the roof has a number of domes - and of the city. You'll need to be fit as there are more than 200 steps up! Tuesday to Sunday (not Monday therefore), from 10.30 to 2.30, going up in groups of maximum 50 people. There will be a group every half hour. The price is 6€, although Spanish OAPs, students and unemployed have a reduced price of 3€. If you have a head for heights, well worth a go! .
  • Looks awesome. A monumental place. Entrance fee at this moment is 5€ pp
  • A beautiful cathedral, both externally and internally. There is also the opportunity to go up on the roof and see a beautiful view of the center of Malaga.
  • Málaga's Renaissance Cathedral was begun in 1528 on the site of a mosque. However, the building is still incomplete, as one of the two towers remains unfinished. To be fair most of the building - the interior, the main facade and one of the towers - were completed in 1782, a mere 254 years later! It was worth the wait for the building is quite splendid especially the Baroque façade which faces the Plaza del Obispo. Whilst the exterior is quite exuberant, the interior is rather solemn – mostly Renaissance but with some Baroque embellishments.
  • Must visit. Entrance fee is low, even lower if you have student ID. So much history inside those walls.
