This wonderful church is located in Calle Granada. Its façade is a prove of its architectural evolution and when you enter inside you will get impressed by its beauty. Do not miss the place where Picasso was baptised!

This is probably one of the oldest churches in Málaga. You don't give much for it seeing it from the outside, buy inside you'll have very beautiful art and architecture. Picasso was baptized here and the certificate is on public display.
