Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Malaga / Malaga Cathedral
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.

Malaga Cathedral reviews
It’s a breath taking image. So beautiful with so much detail! Must see! The construction has been going on for years but don’t let that keep you away. more »
The malaga cathedral was great to view at night - the central christmas tree was setup in front of the cathedral during christmas. The cathedral looked beautiful and made for a good picture spot. more »
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)
