La Sala María Cristina in Malaga Awaits Concert Lovers

For concert enthusiasts in Malaga, there’s a hidden gem that offers not just exceptional music but also a journey through history. Welcome to La Sala Unicaja de Conciertos María Cristina, nestled within the historic confines of what was once the Franciscan convent of San Luis el Real.

Built in the 15th century and later repurposed as the Liceo Artístico y Literario de Málaga, this architectural marvel eventually found its true calling as a hub for music lovers. Thanks to the vision of Eduardo Ocón Rivas, the Real Conservatorio María Cristina breathed new life into these ancient walls.

After the conservatory’s relocation, the building lay abandoned until 1975 when it was rescued by the Caja de Ahorros de Ronda (now Unicaja) for restoration. Finally, in 2009, it emerged as the exquisite music hall we know today.

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by the grandeur of the main concert hall, once the central nave of the convent church. But it’s not just the music that captivates; the Salón de los Espejos and Salón Mudéjar boast meticulously restored wooden ceilings and century-old murals by esteemed artists like Joaquín Martínez De La Vega and José Denis Belgrano.

Last week, fortunate attendees experienced the enchantment of Concerto 1700 – Sones Y Danzas De La España Antigua. Transported back in time to the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, they reveled in the melodies that echoed through these historic halls.

So, whether you’re a connoisseur of classical tunes or simply seeking an immersive cultural experience, La Sala Unicaja de Conciertos María Cristina promises an unforgettable journey through music and history.
