Cathedral of the Incarnation of Malaga

Local name: Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga

The Renaissance Roman Catholic Cathedral of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación is characterized by a Baroque facade. Inside the temple you can see the main altar, gothic side chapels, neoclassical incarnation altar, carved entrance door, choir, eighteenth-century organs, sacristy and sixteenth-century crypts. The church tower measures 84 meters, making it the second tallest religious building in Andalusia. Within the cathedral there is the Cathedral Museum.

The Renaissance building was built in the 16th-18th century according to the architectural design of Diego de Siloe. It was built on the remains of the Almohad mosque. In the 20th century, the houses in the immediate vicinity of the cathedral were demolished, which is now surrounded only by the park. The church has only one tower, the other has not been completed yet. For this reason, the church is sometimes called La Manquita.
