Malaga Cathedral


Description

Located in the historic centre, this is one of the most important buildings in the city. Construction was begun on the orders of Ferdinand and Isabella. Its full name is Our Lady of the Incarnation but it is popularly known as ‘La Manquita'. The nickname comes from the fact that one of the towers and part of the main façade remain unfinished. The cathedral interior has Renaissance and Baroque touches. The Choir, one of the most important in Spain, is a highlight with its choir stalls designed by Pedro de Mena. The two organs have over 4,000 tubes and continue to be used. The Cathedral Museum is situated in the cathedral, in the old chapterhouse, and split into two rooms. One is home to works by artists such as Pedro de Mena and José Ribera whilst the other houses carvings, monstrances, ceramics and reliquaries.
