Discover Renaissance beauty in the heart of Andalucía at Malaga Cathedral. Constructed in the 16th century, the cathedral is referred to by locals as “La Manguita,” as it boasts only one high tower instead of the traditional two-tower design. 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 .

  • Easy to reach with a nice walk passing in the central streets, quite large but very simple... I was expecting something special, something more!

  • The surroundings of the great Cathedral are beautiful. The interior and exterior of the cathedral is impressive. The Dimensions enchant man. You can also look at the garden, where iron constructions are exhibited.

  • History is interesting if you display it in the right way. This Katedral in Malaga is a visit worthy. Almost to much to take in but very beautiful. You will get a voice guide to help you understand all you see. This is a cool and fantastic element of the tour. This also allows kids to follow without asking everything. You can get it in German, France and English and of course Spanish. Also fine if you have kids about 10 or above. The museum part was a bit small but beautiful peace’s.
  • Absolute beauty. Also much bigger than you would think. If the weather is good, I recommend going up to the roof from where You can see almost all of the city. Already planning to get back
