The Malaga cathedral is a Renaissance church built on the site of former medieval Moorish walls whose remains are found in the nearby Alcazaba and the Castle of Gibralfaro. Diego de Siloe, a Spanish Renaissance sculptor, was the primary architect of the Malaga cathedral. According to his plans, the construction was carried out between 1528 and 1782.
The interiors of the cathedral are a glorious representation of renaissance and baroque splendor. The remarkable 17th century choir stalls of mahogany and cedar were designed by Luis Ortiz. Later, the wood carving of saints behind each stall were sculpted by Pedro de Mena. His teacher, Alonso Caro has also contributed to some of the works on the chapels.
