Tour the cathedral’s many chapels, admiring grand artwork and details like the ornate Neoclassical altarpiece depicting the patron saints of Málaga and the carved mahogany, 17th-century choir stalls. Visit the museum on the second floor to see ceremonial treasures and important artifacts. Make Malaga Cathedral a part of your Malaga vacation plans using our Malaga travel route planner .

Malaga Cathedral Reviews
Magnifico edificio rinascimentale più grande dell'Andalusia. La cattedrale non venne mai conclusa,per questo sopprannominata "la manquita" more »Magnificent Renaissance building largest in Andalusia. The cathedral was never finished, so soppran called "the manquita"
Bygningen er fantastisk og det er omvisningen også. Se katedralen i dit eget tempo med lydguide på eget sprog, wow! more »The building is amazing and it is the redisplay too. See the Cathedral at your own pace with audio guide in your own language, wow!
The inside is impressive - the audio guide is very dry and detailed - great if you are interested in all the iconography but too long for most of us. The rooftop tour is much more interesting. You get fantastic views over the harbour and the city and I think you can just get this tour on its own for €6. The courtyard on the right as you go towards the entrance is a lovely cool & shady spot to relax for a while out of the hot sun.
Nice little garden. There's a ticket to go in, which I don't like for places of worship. Only admired nice architecture & garden. There's probably a great view of the city from the top, which you also need to pay for (I think it's 6 euro visit/go up the roof, or 10 euro both)
