Cathedral of Malaga
The Cathedral of Malaga is called Cathedral of the Incarnation (Catedral de la Encarnación in Spanish) and is located where the Mosque-Aljama stood the eight centuries of Muslim rule.
Construction started in the first half of the sixteenth century (1528), and continued until the 18th. It remained unfinished and the subsequent alterations give the place the unique look that characterizes it and is the source of its popular name, "The Manquita."
Inside there is a vast body of sculptural work, including 42 carvings by Pedro de Mena, Vargas and Giuseppe Ortiz Micael Alfaro. There is also a superb organ, with more than 4,000 pipes, which is still used today. It houses the Cathedral Museum.
