Hi there!

Ready to hear a little and nice story? Hey, pictures are included!

Did you know that the Malaga cathedral is called ”La Manquita”?

Why? What does it mean?

Here the explanation with my own words:

Manquita comes from manca. And ”manca” is a person who only has one arm. ”manquita” is like saying it in a nice way; like Perra = Perrita, Casa = Casita, etc etc

I hope you understand.

The cathedral should have two towers, but one of the towers could not be finished because there was no more money for the construction. But specially this is one of the most attractive attributes of this themple, popularly known as ”La Manquita”.
