Saturday Snaps #10 – Malaga Cathedral


Location: Malaga Cathedral Taken in Málaga, Spain

Author: Irene and Stefano from Freelancers on the Road

Description: At first sight, Málaga’s Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica de la Encarnación seems to be an ordinary cathedral. However, walking around the entire building, you will notice that the south tower is – very clearly – unfinished.

During construction, the funds raised for finishing the tower were – depending on the source – either used to help the United States gain independence from Great Britain or renovate the Camino de Antequera in Málaga.

By the way: its unfinished tower gives the cathedral is nickname “La Manquita” (the one-armed lady).
