A Very Beautiful Little Church

There is always a Sunday Mass in the Church of the Tabernacle and it is a very good place to hear mass. One can see the very beautiful altar with all of its statues.

Marvelous small church, the Iglesia del Sagrario (Church of the Tabernacle) next to the cathedral. The standout features are the wonderful Gothic doorway believed to have begun around 1500 at the foot of the mosque which predates the church on the site. Also the wall behind the alter is a riot of baroque covering the whole north wall. There is... More

The Church of the Tabernacle is a beautiful place to hear Mass because it is so very beautiful. The altar occupies one whole side of the church and is very interesting. One can admire it while he hears Mass.

A beautiful church that could be overlooked but has a magnificent altar . It is well worth a visit while in Malaga just fro the altar but the rest too once seen will not be forgotten.

This is a mosque that was converted to a Gothic style church, as others have said, with a magnificent centre altar. As is usual fascinating architecture and design. Not to be missed, recommended.

The Church of the Tabernacle has a magnificent main altar. This church is quite small but its altar calls attention because it occupies the whole wall and has the Plateresque style that is very beautiful and elaborate. The church is a good place to hear mass because it is small.

The Church of the Tabernacle has a magnificent main altarpiece that occupies the whole wall of the church. The style of the altarpiece is Plateresque, meaning that it is very elaborate. This style appeared during the late Gothic and early Renaissance periods in Spain and was characterized by designs with plenty of decoration and floral forms. This is one of... More

The Church of Santa Maria del Sagrario is located by the Cathedral. It has a Plateresque altarpiece that fills the whole wall and is really a huge art masterpiece. Juan de Balmaseda was the artist and the altarpiece comes from the Church of San Pedro de Becerril de Campos (Palencia).
