It presently houses the Tourist Promotion Department and a Malaga Town Hall tourist information office.
Period: 16th, 17th and 18th Century
The Cathedral, or Catedral de la Encarnación, was erected on the site where the city's main mosque stood during the eight centuries of Muslim domination. Construction of the cathedral began in the first half of the 16th Century (1528) and continued throughout the 17th and 18th Centuries. though it is still unfinished, as it is missing the top part of the main façade and the south tower is incomplete. Nevertheless, this fact has, over time, become an original feature that is the origin of its being nicknamed 'La Manquita' (one-armed). One of its most outstanding features on the inside are the choir stalls, with 42 sculptures carried out by Pedro de Mena, Ortiz de Vargas and Giuseppe Micael Alfaro, and the two organs, magnificent musical instruments that are rare examples of 18th-century pieces that have over 4,000 pipes and are still in good working condition. There is also a Cathedral Museum inside.
The celebration of Holy Week in our city took on its procession format with the reconquest of the city by the Catholic Monarchs in 1487 and the conversion of the inhabitants to Catholicism. This brings us to the present day, in which two forms of living and understanding Holy Week co-exist. Together with the school of thought developed in the post-war period (huge tronos, sumptuousness and luxury in the processional cortege), there is the other way of thinking, which began to appear at the end of the 70s, with the new Brotherhoods (penitential spirit, greater austerity and putting greater weight on performing the penitential rite). In any case, variety is something that defines the very essence of our Holy Week, a powerful reason to visit our city and enjoy this celebration that, for the people of Malaga, unquestionably marks the beginning of spring.
