    CATEDRAL DE MALAGA

    by LoriPori Updated Mar 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: February 23, 2011
    Hans and I, along with Bajondillo friends Gino and Fina, visited Malaga. One of the highlights was to see CATEDRAL DE MALAGA or MALAGA CATHEDRAL.
    It is also called the Cathedral of the Incarnation and is Malaga's most important monument and the spiritual center of the diocese. Work on the building began around 1528, when the emperor Charles I was on the throne. Although originally designed as a Gothic cathedral, it was built in the Renaissance style and major Baroque additions were made to it later. Master craftsmen were responsible for the cathedral with its nave and two aisles, ambulatory and vaults over 41 metres high.
    The cathedral was consecrated on August 3, 1588 by the prelate Luis Garcia de Hano. When work was interrupted in the summer of 1782, the exterior was left unfinished and lacking one of its towers,

    La Manca, the history of the tower

    Favorite thing: You will see that the cathedral has only one tower.

    Thats the reason is called La Manca

    There are many histories about why they did not finished the second one.

    One of the favorities for the people of Malga is that they took the money for the Sevilla festival (always there has been animosity between this two cities lol)

    Favorite thing: Okay, I `ve been staying here in Málaga for more than two months, and finally I like it. I had to become accostumed to many things like the dirt or the noise, but when you walk through the city without tourist`s eyes you may discover charming places like the the area around the cathedral.

    cathedral in Malaga

    Favorite thing: An outstanding piece of architecture, very big and nice. I didn't have my wide angle photocamera to make it a nice photo from close, but from castle of Gibralfaro you can see it very well.
