Located at the main square of the cathedral, it presents a splendid (though obviously somewhat overshadowed) example of the Spanish architecture of the Palacio-type.

This was closed when we were on a ship shore excursion, however, the outside is worth while walking around as it is central downtown of the old section.

It's an amazing place showing you how wealthy the church was (and still is). The wealth is shown with not only a beautiful building but also the art.

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.
