Málaga Cathedral, Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica de la Encarnación, with its Baroque exterior and Renaissance interior, is an impressive building and well worth a visit.
It was started in 1528 and completed, almost, in 1782. The north tower, at 84 metres is the second tallest in Andalucia after the Giralda in Sevilla. The south tower, however, remains unfinished. Similar to what happens today really.
The lavish interior, as one might expect, contains numerous grand artworks from sculptors such as Antonio Ramos an Aldehuela and the painter Enrique Simonet.
Each of the side chapels, of which there are quite a few, has an ornate altarpiece.
A sad reflection on modern society is the number of beggars clustered around the entrances.
