One of the most prominent landmarks in Malaga, the gargantuan Malaga Cathedral looms over the city’s historical centre. Built between 1528 and 1782 on the site of a former mosque, the cathedral is a prime example of Spanish Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
Stroll around the orange tree-lined gardens and look up at the grand structure, and you’ll notice it looks somewhat unfinished. That’s because only one of its two towers has been completed due to lack of funds. In fact, locals have affectionately nicknamed the cathedral La Manquita (the one-armed woman) due its lop-sided appearance. Once inside, you can marvel at the intricately designed wooden choir stalls, 18th-century organs, and finely carved statues designed by Pedro de Mena.
