This is a Cathedral that was built on top of an arabic mosque after the Cristians came into this region of Spain. The Catedral de la Encarnacion was built in the 16th Century and is a very beautiful reminder of how rich and powerful the catholic church was back then.

Although, they spared no cost with the cathedral, the South Tower has never been finished and because of this in Malaga the locals also call the Catedral de la Encarnacion "La Manquita" (the one armed).

It's well worth a visit, the enterior is absoltutely amazing.
