Calle Molina Lario, Malaga

The Catholic Monarchs built the Cathedral in Malaga between the 6th and 8th centuries on the ruins of an ancient Mosque. The only part which still remains of the former Mosque is the patio de los Naranjos, which is a courtyard with orange trees. It is one of the prettiest cathedrals in Andalusia with its Renaissance and Gothic architecture, even if the south tower and the main facade of the building remain unfinished.

The 18th century baroque exterior of the building can be contrasted with the Gothic and Renaissance interiors. The wooden pews date back to the 7th century. The cathedral also has a museum which can be visited from Monday to Saturday.
