Malaga English Cemetery (1)

In 1831, faced with the problem of the impossibility of burial of Protestants in Malaga, the English Cemetery was founded by William Mark, British Consul, so that the members of his community could receive a dignified burial. This is the oldest Protestant cemetery in peninsular Spain.

Saint George's Anglican Church was built in 1856, but did not function as a church until after its inauguration as such on April 5, 1891. It originally served as a caretaker's house.
