I have read somewhere, that the cathedral is closed due to renovation.
If it true, where can i get my stamp in Malaga Good Friday.
Maybe there is a albergue on the way, or the tourist information. Hope that someone
can help me.

No, you've got it wrong. The cathedral is open as normal (I did the rooftop tour last week - highly recommended).

The church of Santiago was closed last time I walked past. I am due another visit to the city at the end of the week and will take a look to see if anything has changed and report back.

You could contact the association of amigos at
http://caminomozarabedemalaga.com/asociacion/

They only open to visitors for a few hours on Tuesday evenings, but I am sure that will be very helpful if you contact them by email.

I would suggest that perhaps you consider obtaining your credencial from this forum and if the church is closed, ask at the cathedral or the tourist office for your first stamp.

If you are in Malaga over Easter, you are in for a great treat. The Santa Semana parades around the city are spectacular.

I walked from Malaga in 2015 and you are very welcome to take a look at my blog where I posted live every day, giving lots of useful information about accommodation and elevation. See link below.
Buen camino!

Hola - the Cathedral in Malaga is indeed open and in fact the nun currently in charge of the Sacristy is sister Maria Jesús who served for 9 years in Santiago. I'm sure she'll welcome you and sort out the sello. The tourist office might not be open on Good Friday but the cathedral and other churches certainly will.

Buen Camino

Thank you everyone for your replys.
It seems like it's not going to be a problem to get my first stamp in Malaga. I know, i can get it from a bar if i want to. I've just been very focused on getting my stamp in the Cathedral.

Magwood.
I know your blog. I was suppose to walk the Via, but it was difficult for me
with the planes to Sevilla. I found the camino from Malaga. I googled, and found your blog. Lycky me, now planning is easy. I'm going from Malaga to Salamanca in 21 days Thank you for your lovely blog, it helped me a lot.
Greeting, Birgitte

Wow, @bval, I took 30 days to reach salamanca with an average of 27 km per day. Are you missing some stages or walking really long days?

I hope you enjoy this camino - it certainly seems to be gaining popularity (albeit very slowly!)

Buen camino!

Yes, I know that it is a bit of a challenge this time, but I love it that way. Normally I do not plan, but this time I have planned down to the smallest detail and it is actually a problem. Now I'm starting to worry, not because I'm the worrying type, but there is suddenly a thousand unknown factors .One of my concerns is the Easter holidays. When I call someone, will they pick up the phone? And things like that. My problem is Almogia, Antequera, Encinas Reales and Cabra. I write to ASOCIACIÓN Jacobea DE MÁLAGA, they must know. Now I countdown the days and looking forward to, I have to go.
