<b>Malaga Cathedral Malaga places of interest Malaga</b>

Details

Malaga Cathedral is called the Catedral de la Encarnacion (Cathedral of the Incarnation)
Building began in 1528 in the gothic style and lasted over two centuries which explains the mixture of architectural styles from Gothic to Renaissance to Baroque and was built on a desecrated Muslim mosque of which evidence remains buried beneath the present structure.
The Cathedral is often nicknamed the little one-armed lady, or "la manquita" because its second tower was never completed due to lack of funds. Some say that the funds set aside were sent to the newly formed USA to fight the British whilst others will say that it was sent to help victims after an earthquake in Alabama. Where ever the funds went meant that the Cathedral never had the second tower built. There are many works of art inside the Cathedral including many representations of the Virgin and the notable 17th century cedarwood and mahogany choir stalls which were designed by Luis Ortiz and after his death the 40 finely carved statues of the saints behind each stall were completed by Pedro de Mena, one of Spain's most celebrated wood-carvers of the time, who spent some years in Malaga. Take in the facades of the Cathedral as they are all different as you look around, the Gothic altar table and the statue of the Virgin.
The Cathedral and its museum are open from 9am to 6.45pm daily
except on Sundays and public holidays.
