Cathedral of Malaga

Built between 1528 and 1782 the Cathedral of Malaga is an exquisite example of Renaissance architecture and is instantly recognisable amidst Malaga’s rolling city scape due to its unbuilt second tower, which has earned it the affectionate nickname ‘La Manquita’ or one-armed lady. The site of the cathedral has further religious significance as forming part of the remains of the former Almohad Mosque, a subtle reminder of Spain’s Moorish history. Not only is the cathedral itself an artistic marvel sporting both Baroque and Renaissance styles but the impressive interior, gardens and small on-site museum also feature fantastic examples of design and creativity. This staple of any trip to Malaga is well worth a visit for any group, particularly those exploring religious education or art.
