My Fourth Visit to Spain: Cathedral of Málaga

The Cathedral of Málaga of would be the last church I have seen in this trip. And yes, I have seen plenty, this is Spain, after all. This particular cathedral actually would be memorable, because there is the possibility to go up the roof. I will tell more of that later.

The cathedral was built between 1528 and 1782, with a Renaissance style interior. The height of the cathedral is 84 metres, which means it towers above the rest of the city, providing interesting views. This also means that it is the second-highest cathedral in Andalusia.

The cathedral is actually asymmetric, since there's only one tower that is completed. Instead of a second tower, there is a plaque that says that the money was used instead to help the Colonies in the Americas, in gaining their Independence from the United Kingdom. Although it seems that if you examine the parish registers, the money was used instead for a local highway renovation project.
