Cathedral of Malaga

"La Manquita"

Why we call the Cathedral of Malaga "La Manquita"?

The Cathedral of Malaga perfectly combines different architectural styles: Gothic in its plan, Renaissance in its elevation and headboard, and Baroque in its main façade and in the decoration of its roofs. Among his works of art highlights the Corral's Sillería, by Pedro de Mena.

The construction covers from the middle of the century XVI until the end of XVIII, when the King ordered to stop the works.The north tower rises to 84 meters in height, being the second tallest cathedral in Andalusia, behind the Giralda of Seville.

The south tower is unfinished. This condition gives the Cathedral of Malaga the nickname of 'La Manquita'.
