Such a beautiful Church. Breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit if in Marbella and like looking at Churches. I believe it is a 16th century Church

The tall tower of the Church can be seen down alleys and across rooftops, until you arrive at the Church itself with the square in front. The Church of Our Lady of the Incarnation was built in the sixteenth century but has had several alterations...More

Typical Catholic interior with lots of apses devoted to saints etc. and a very ornate alter. Intimate scale and bright interior. Well worth a look inside but half an hour at most for your visit unless you want to sit and contemplate..

Nothing too spectacular - just another church. The gilded carvings of the altar are notable, so it is worth to spend five minutes taking a peek at the interior.

My wife and I came across the Iglesia / Marbella cathedral as we strolled the historic quarter. Free to enter, the internal decoration will take your breath away. The high altar is more beautiful than words can say. We highly recommend a short visit. Light...More
