The building is one of the best examples of Spanish religious art and it is located on the remains of other cultural buildings such as the early Almohad mosque. The missing tower has led to it being popularly known as La Manquita (one-armed).
You will find the Museo Catedralicio (Cathedral Museum) inside the cathedral, which is currently housed where the old Chapter House can be found. There are two rooms, part of the 18th Century building work, with beautiful 19th Century coffer-work, pieces from the Cathedral itself and other sites.
The building that dates from the Muslim period is located at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill, crowned by the Arab defence works to which the Alcazaba is connected by a walled passage known as the Coracha. With the Roman Theatre and the Aduana Customs Building, this special corner offers the chance to observe Roman, Arab and Renaissance culture, all within a few yards of each other.
