This is a must see in Malaga. We spent the better part of an hour and a half touring this amazing cathedral, which was built in the 1500's (and added on until the 1800's). A bit of work still appears to be going on here....More

I thought after being at the Vatican and Notre Dame in Paris the Cathedral might be a letdown. It was not and I enjoyed it just as much if not more that the above mentioned two. I recommend a visit most highly.

Try to visit during a church mass; great to see how belief is still practiced Malaga. Loved the singing by a nun.

My partner suggested this visit and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. You are given a mobile devise to listen to at each area in your own language to give you the history. The architecture and structures inside are incredible

This cathedral was one of the largest & most ornate cathedrals I’ve seen in a long time. There’s something both awe inspiring and obnoxious at once. I think the awe I felt was based on the architecture and skill of the craftsmen who built this...More

This was one of two sightseeing highlights of my stay in Malaga (the other being the Picasso Museum). Stunning chapels in this historic cathedral, and magnificent views from the rooftop on the guided tour.
