De Katedraal Van Malaga

De kathedraal van Málaga

De kathedraal van Málaga is één van de meest in het oog springende bezienswaardigheden van Málaga. Vanuit bijna elk punt zie je de kathedraal boven de stad uitkomen. Tijdens je verblijf in Málaga zal je de kathedraal waarschijnlijk meerdere keren passeren.

Voor de bouw van de kathedraal is veel tijd verbruikt, er is ruim 200 jaar nodig geweest om deze kathedraal te bouwen. In 1528 is men begonnen te bouwen op de fundering van een oude moskee.

Tijdens de bouw kwam steeds hetzelfde probleem terug, geld, hierdoor is de bouw in 1782 volledig stopgezet. Hierdoor is de rechter toren van de kathedraal nooit afgemaakt. Als je voor de kathedraal staat zal je dit ook heel goed kunnen zien, een complete toren en een halve toren. De kathedraal wordt hierdoor ook wel “La Manquita” genoemd, dit betekend “één-armige of manke dame”.

Door de lange bouwperiode zijn er verschillende stijlen verwerkt in de kathedraal. Het lage gedeelte heeft bijvoorbeeld een Gotische stijl. De Renaissancestijl kun je terugzien in een van de tempeldeuren en de Barokstijl komt terug in de decoratie van de lateien en de voorgevel.
Vooral aan de zijkant in de straat Calle Cister, zie je duidelijk verschil in stijlen.

Ook de binnenkant van de kathedraal is de moeite waard om even te gaan kijken. De kerk heeft vele kapellen met ieder een eigen betekenis. Het in de 17e eeuw gemaakte priesterkoor is ook prachtig om te zien, het is geheel uit hout gesneden door de beroemde beeldhouwer Pedro de Mena.

Een ander hoogtepunt in de kathedraal is het orgel uit 1871. Het orgel is gebouwd door Julian de la Orden, volgens musici en experts is dit orgel geweldig qua klank.

De kathedraal van Málaga is niet de grootste in Spanje, maar zeker de moeite waard om te gaan kijken.
