This is such a beautiful church. they have multiple weddings here each saturday in the summer months. I have attended mass here and the experience is memorable. I truly love this church and I expect you will too. The exterior is modest compared to what you see inside. Please be cognizant of the worshipers if you come during worship. Photography... More

This church is a must visit in Malaga. If you only have time to visit one site, make sure it is this one. You WILL be astonished. Every one of the chapels within the church is highly decorated.

We were taken here as part of our walking tour from the Tourist Information shop at the bottom of Marquis de Larios. We would have walked past it, as it looks like nothing from the outside, very ornate inside, with our guide giving some background.

We chose to visit this having just been to the Museo Carmen Thyssen as it is just a few metres away. It was very peaceful with very few other “tourists”, the remaining visitors being local people making religious observation. The decoration is interesting and some of the side chapels are amazing, in particular the one containing a life-size naturalistic sculptural... More

The Church of Los Martires is one of the most beautiful churches in Malaga and is one of the best churches to visit. The church has plenty of images of Christ and the Virgin Mary, some of them real works of art.

We have visited over 200 cathedrals and churches throughout Europe. This cathedral is small in a quiet plaza somewhat away from the touristy section of town. The outside the church is not impressive but the inside is nicely decorated. The walls and ceiling are white so the artwork shows off quite nicely. The decoration is peaceful and welcoming unlike some... More
