The Church of San Felipe Neri is located at Calle Cabello, 20.

The Second Count of Buenavista (Antonio Tomas Guerrero Coronado y Zapata) had a chapel built between 1720 and 1730 near his palace on Calle Gaona, which would later become the church. Felipe de Unzurrúnzaga was the first architect. The church was later enlarged by Jose Martin de Aldehuela in 1785 and the main altar was finished in 1795, with a Neoclassic canopy made of polychrome marble and wood. In 1931, during the Second Republic, a group of people tried to burn the church, but did not succeed. However they stole many of the images in the church. Between September, 2010, and November, 2011, the church was restored completely to eliminate the dampness in the walls of the church. On Nov. 27, 2011, the Bishop of Malaga Jesus Catala Ibañez inaugurated the restored church with a Mass.

Today the church has the Baroque style and is one of the most beautiful in Malaga. On the façade there are two towers, one on each side of the main door. The façade has red and ochre geometric etchings that were the style at the beginning of the 18th century. There is one nave, which is very different from other churches because the nave is elliptical in shape, and this gives a sensation of movement. One of the altars on the right side has a new image of San Felipe Neri, work of the sculptors Raúl Trillo and Salvador Lamas. There is a new marble floor that is colored white, black and red.

The church has two important images. One is the image of Our Lady Virgen de Consolación y Lágrimas, an 18th century sculpture which belongs to the processional brotherhood of Archicofradía de la Sangre, (restored in 1972 by Álvarez Duarte), and the other is the figure of Christ Crucified, the work of Francisco Palma Burgos (1941). The central chapel has a 20th century altarpiece dedicated to the Third Order of the Servants of Mary, which is presided over by an image of Our Lady Virgen de los Dolores, a clothed sculpture by Fernando Ortíz.

There are six large new paintings that were created by the artist Raúl Berzosa to decorate the presbytery. They show scenes from the life of San Felipe Neri, the Resurrection of Christ, the Vision of the Virgin Mary, the Dinner at Emaus, the Appearance of Christ to Mary Magdalene, and the Incredulity of St. Thomas.
