  • 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.

  • The Cathedral is worth a visit in any case. You impressed as building and through his works of art in the Interior. The payable entrance fee of 5.00 EUR per person creates a thread aftertaste. The poor Catholic Church can apparently no longer allow itself to outside of God services without visiting a church visitors. Of course at the exit must souvenir shop to find, one must go through to leave the Cathedral.

  • 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.
  • Magnificent. Just a tip, on Sunday masses you can enter the cathedral for free and have a look around after the mass. On regular days you have to pay around around 5-8 euros, students have discount but bring an ID!
  • Impressive cathedral at the Base of the moorish palace and next to the old Roman theatre. Impressive both inside and outside.
  • Amazing place to visit I've never seen such beauty in a building. Something I shall keep with me always.
  • Visited in April 2016. Absolutely beautiful architecture. This place is definitely worth seeing, it was even bigger than what I expected from the pictures I had seen online.
