Museum and the Basilica Santa Maria de la Victoria
Museum and Basilica of Santa Maria de la Victoria is outside the historic quarter but still within the urban district. It was originally a hermitage built on the place where Fernando the Catholic set up his encampment to prepare for the taking of Málaga. In the seventeenth century the hermitage was replaced by a Baroque church, paid for by the Count of Buenavista.
The interior of the church is noteworthy for the “camarín” of the Virgin, which has exuberant gesso artwork, intermingled with angels, plant motives and Marianite symbols, and for the crypt of the Counts of Buenavista. The latter is morbidly dramatic, with white gesso artwork standing out against black backgrounds, features that give it an air of macabre theatricality.
