Ars Málaga-Bishop’s Palace, is an art space in which you can visit the noble

area of the palace: arcaded courtyard, imperial stairs, chapel and private

garden. It has rooms to be used for temporary and permanent exhibitions.

The area of the Palacio Episcopal (Bishop’s Palace) that can be visited was

built in 1762 by the head master of the cathedral Antonio Ramos. The main

façade highlights in the exterior part. It reproduces a Baroque front altarpiece,

presided over by the named Virgen de las Angustias, attributed to

have been made by Fernando Ortíz.

In the interior part, one of the most interesting spaces due to their peculiarity

are the stairs of imperial style. Over them, there is hanging a fresco of

the Triunfo de la Eucaristía (Triumph of the Eucharist), an anonymous work

pertaining to Baroque style.

The private chapel of the prelate has a barrel vault with lunettes on the

sides and stained glass windows in the apse, illuminating an intimate space

with niches on both sides and a choir.

In the private garden, that can be visited today, it highlights two sources

and a large tiled plinth of Dutch influence of Delf and made by

the Sevillian school, with twelve scenes of mythological and folk type.

In them, we can see characters own of the XVIIIth century, dressed as

“majos” (inhabitant of the working-class neighbourhoods of Madrid

in the 18th and 19th centuries) and other “à la française”; representing

scenes in the court, art of bullfighting, hunting, music, etc.

A place of peace and tranquillity where the murmur of the water

amidst the bustle of the historic centre of Málaga can be listened to.
