Construction of this church began in 1683 under the patronage of the Spanish monarchs.
It included a hospital wing where the sick could be cared for and where the city’s poor could find shelter.
Under the supervision of the Order of the Brotherhood of Santa Caridad de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo and the municipality, inter alia, this hospital church remained in use for a long time.
The San Julian church closed its doors in 1931. In 1972 the Bishop of Málaga decided to donate the building to the ‘Brotherhoods of Semana Santa’ who set up their headquarters here.
The money earned from the museum provided funds for the renovation of the heavily neglected church which was put back into use in 1988.
You will also find the ‘Museo de la Semana Santa’ here, where you can learn all about the important Holy Week and its processions.
