Excursion Details:
  • The cathedral was built between 1528 and 1782 on the site of a former mosque. The original plans consisted of two towers, however only one was built, which led to the cathedral gaining the name “one armed woman”.
  • The interior displays both Renaissance and baroque styles, with 40 finely carved wooden statues. Some of the chapels leading off the aisles contain work by Pedro de Mena.
  • Adjoining the cathedral is the Iglesia del Sagrano, which is a smaller church richly decorated internally, containing it’s original 16th century alter.
  • The cathedral also contains a small museum which is accessed via a wooden staircase in the cathedral shop. Visitors are also able to do a rooftop tour of the cathedral. Climbing up 200 steps there is a beautiful view over Malaga from the top. Guided tours are available in both English and Spanish.
  • The gardens are free to visit and contain a number of items of interest in the Museo al Aire Libre de Cathedral de Malaga. The gardens also contain a monument of victims of the civil war, whose names have been removed.
