The Málaga organs were built by Julián de la Orden from 1779 to 1781. The cases were designed by José Martín Aldehuela, built by Juan de Salazar and Antonio Medina, and painted and gilded by Gregorio Ortiz and José Romero.

The cases height is about 21 meters and both instruments were built in between the columns of the choir. Each organ has two “Caderetas”, similar to the german equivalent of Rückpositiv, one on each side of the organ – one turned to the choir and another turned to the aisles.

The lower section has a larger width and horizontal trumpets near the console; above this larger section is located a smaller superimposed section. Both parts are crowned with a round or triangular pediment placed over entablatures. Corinthian columns support visually the entablatures and divide the pipe fields.

The lower section is decorated with painted and gilded panels separated by ionic pilasters. On the top of each case was built a part of an iconographic program related to the Virtues. On the choir facades were placed the Theological Virtues and the Religion, and on the aisle façades were sculpted the Cardinal Virtues. Pipes mouths are also finely painted.
