Malaga City - Palacio Episcopal / Bishops Palace

Palacio Episcopal / Bishops Palace

The Palacio Episcopal houses a small collection of religious paintings and effigies.

A permanent exhibition called "Ars Sacra" is part of the patromony of the Malaga province dioceses and has been collected from a number of churches.   Three rooms are ordered chronologically from XV to XVIII century. The latter entitled 'Masters of the Baroque'.    There are policromatic wooden figures works Ecce Homo and Virgen Doloroso by Pedro de Mena.

There is also a permanent exhibition of Sub-Sahara African artifacts and currency.

The building itself features also a small patio garden with fountain to enjoy a peaceful space among orange trees and palms.   It was opened to the public in 2014.

There are also temporary exhibitions on the first floor.

The three storey building itself was constructed in 1762 by Antoni Ramos. The Baroque style facade of red white, pink and grey marble certainly stands out.

The Cathedral Roof visits are organized from here, the tours start here, and tickets are sold here and not at the Cathedral itself.
