Magnificent, charismatic building in central
Malaga. 6 Euros to enter and really there is lots of amazing architecture to take in. Religious artefacts abound in this vast site. Well worth a view. My wife and I enjoyed the visit greatly.

The Malaga Cathedral is a magnificent building that is worth a visit. The roof top also offers a very good view of the city.

We pre-booked our tickets but it might not be necessary- we went on a Sunday afternoon and there was a short queue for those who didn't pre-book.

At €7pp, the entrance fee was overpriced. A rectangular building with 15 shrines inside and nothing else. In-and-out within 20-30 minutes. Externally it isn’t much to see either.

Stunning both day and night. Beautiful building where you can visit inside too. Not very expensive for entrance fee…choice of tickets,….cathedral only, €6 cathedral and roof tour, €10. Plus other options.

For views over the city well worth the roof guide but if you have been upto the castle, you see very similar views.
A must see.

I recently went to Malaga on a mystery trip (I found out where I was going when I got to the airport),so I didn’t get a chance to look in depth at things to do in Malaga. The Cathedral is absolutely beautiful, well the outside is. I never got to go inside because by the time I had finished at the Picasso museum the cathedral was closed and on Sundays it doesn’t open until 2pm, by which time I had travelled on to Granada.

I loved my visit to the cathedral! It's very beautiful inside and the audio guide is on your phone so you can listen more about the history at your own pace. I also went to the rooftop and well worth it! You have amazing views of Malaga from the top, just make sure to wear comfortable shoes since you will be going up stairs to get there. Also, go to the rooftop at the earliest time since it does get hot in the afternoon.

This is a must see in Málaga. The cathedral itself is enormous and incredibly high inside. Tak the time to view all the side chapels and stained glass windows which are quite high up. It is hard to imagine how such a huge cathedral was built.

The staff was quite unpleasant. At 5:30 p.m., they permitted us to enter the cathedral for a price and then forced us to leave swiftly and angrily at 6 p.m. There was no description of how the guide functioned at the entrance. We would have skipped the visit that day if we had been advised we didn't have much time. The boy also slammed the door in our faces as we were leaving. You should remind your employees that they are still working in a church.

However, the Cathedral is beautiful.
5 stars for the Cathedral, zero for the staff

This has to be one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. Each side altar is a work of art by itself.

The Cathedral is beautiful, the Priests pleasant. Unfortunately, the Cathedral has stationed some civilian guards at the entrance door at Mass times and these guards are, almost without exception, rude and intimidatory in the extreme, singling out apparent non- Spanish for their special attention. As a Catholic who lives in Malaga for some six months in every year it really is disgraceful that every Sunday when I go to Mass I am subjected to rudeness, told to sit at all times and not wander round the Cathedral. While I fully accept the need to prevent casual tourists from wandering round the Cathedral during service times it is wholly unnecessary to treat them rudely, off handedly and in a quasi intimidatory manner. This not least because some of these apparent 'tourists' actually don't want to visit the Cathedral but simply go to Mass. It is also highly prejudicial for these guards to explain that I am stopped and questioned because I am an 'extranjero' - which technically I am even though we own a property in Malaga two minutes' walk from the Cathedral. These guards are creating an atmosphere which is not at all in keeping with the religious and fundamental basis for the Cathedral's existence. Frankly it is a disgrace.
