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

It is dedicated to the two patron saints of Malaga Ciriaco and Paula who were martyred in 303 AD by the Romans when they refused to renounce their Christian faith. They were stoned to death whilst tied to... More

Smaller than the big cathedral, and harder to find, this church, tucked away in a small plaza, is quiet and somber. Painted uniformly white and gold (unlike the mishmash of styles of the cathedral), it is a soothing place to stop and reflect.

As all churches this one has also beautiful architecture. Visiting is possible and free of charge. Always cool inside, handy with the Spanish weather :).

Having been unable to go into the cathedral because of a celebration event taking place, we wandered around and decided to try this church to get out of the heat and noise of Malaga. We were amazed by the beautiful interior. It is dark but somehow not oppressive. There is so much to look at that you could spend some... More

This church is an amazing place. Like all the churches in Europe it is painted and decorated beautifully. I could not stop looking up at the magnificent painting and wondering how long each took to do. We needed more time here than the tour allowed.
