Well worth the money to take the lift to the top to see the wonderful views of the city, then up the stair to the bell tower - not for the faint hearted as it is a metal spiral staircase and the there is not much room to walk round the tower, but take 15 mins out of you day... More

A lift takes you up to the roof for fantastic views over the old city and the port. Inside the cathedral is majestic and has plenty of history. In front the Plaza de Santa Ana with its dog statues.

Despite looking a little gloomy from the the outside this is a lovely bright and airy Cathedral. Simple and dramatic with lovely stained glass which throws blue light into the interior. Great views from the roof.

Worth the few euros to go to the roof - feels very safe - and fab views of the city - a real high light

A vast empty cathedral with little to recommend it. The pews were painted with polyeurothane gloss which seemed rather strange. No lovely glass windows,a lot of dark stone pillars producing a gloomy atmosphere.

Hang the expense pay €1.50 each and go by lift to the top of the old building and enjoy a first class view of the city.

It is in the Vegueta & is the focus for the historic buildings all around; it is pretty plain & simple inside & majestic outside.

This is a fine piece of architecture in the old, and rather calm area of Vegueta (old Town) of Las Palmas. The Square Plaza de Santa Ana, and surrounding buildings are also worth seeing. If you continue across the Square (or take the street Calle Espirito Santo) and go inland, you will end up at a small crossing or "Square"... More

This is a relatively small, historic cathedral, accessed via the Diocesan Museum (well worth visiting). It is not unduly sumptuous, but has considerable architectural merit. I particularly liked the ceiling.
