LA ‘MANQUITA’

Curiosidades sobre Málaga - Catedral de Málaga

This cathedral is the destination of practically all the tourism routes around Malaga. It would be a great experience to stop by and listen to its history. The name of this cathedral is “La Manquita”(One arm), well known by all the people from Malaga due to its original name as a result of a curious story. The construction of ¨La Manquita¨ began in the 15th Century and it lasted about 250 years. It took such a long time to finish it, therefore the construction was given up and it remained unfinished, drawing the attention to the non-existent tower, which gave it its recognized name.

In fact, under de opinion of experts, the differences in the style of the construction can be seen, since it began with a Gothic style and later, it was fused with the Renaissance and Baroque styles.

 

EL PUENTE DE LOS ALEMANES (The Germans bridge)

Puente de los Alemanes en Málaga

A storm doomed the Gneisenau, a German ship, to wreck. When this disaster occurred, there were many malagueños (people from Malaga), who without hesitation, went to help these sailors. Some of them even lost their lives at the sea.

This brave act gave Malaga the title of “Very Hospitable” that it shows today.

 

Years later, Malaga was hit by a storm that ended up dragging and carrying away the bridges of the Guadalmedina river due to its overflowing. Upon hearing about this, Germany decided to return back the favour and started collecting money for the construction of the “Puente de los Alemanes” (The Germans bridge).
