When you visit Malaga Cathedral, you will also get ticket for this museum. Though you don't like museum, just go inside as the building is very beautiful. The collection? All the tears and sad faces of those figures, they will absolutly not cheer you up.

Every work of art has a description on a card for the Fundacion Godia Exhibition. Unfortunately the lettering on these signs is so small that senior citizens will have a hard time reading the explanations.

A truly colourful and imposing building. Whilst the description of this establishment as a palace may generate some even bigger more fanciful edifice in your mind’s eye it is an impressive ornate building in the heart of a wonderfully historic city and is to be...More
