La Manca, Cathedral of Malaga (Spain)

"La manca" is the popular name that the people of Malaga gave to the Cathedral of Malaga due to the fact that one of the two towers located at the front of the building was not finished (the one closer in the photo).

 

Cathedral of Málaga is Renaissance church in Málaga, Andalusia, southern Spain. It is located inside the limits that the missing Arab wall marked, forming a great architectonic set with the nearby Alcazaba and the Castle of Gibralfaro. It was constructed between 1528 and 1782, following the plans by Diego de Siloe. The interior of the cathedral is also in Renaissance style. (Wikipedia)

La manca es el nombre popular que los malagueños han dado a su catedral por el hecho de que una de las dos torres que enmarcan el frente de la misma está sin terminar, dando este aspecto de manca.

 

La Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica de la Encarnación es la Catedral de Málaga (España), una de las joyas renacentistas más valiosas de Andalucía. Está dentro de los límites que marcaba la desaparecida muralla árabe, formando un gran conjunto arquitectónico junto con la próxima Alcazaba y el Castillo de Gibralfaro. Fue construida entre 1528 y 1782, siguiendo los planos de Diego de Siloé.
