We took the open top bus along to the old part of the town while on a cruise stop here and spent some time just strolling round the cathedral which we had almost all to ourselves. The sunlight was beaming through the coloured glass and shining all over the floors. It even had some soothing music playing in the background.... More

While visiting the area we ended up in a beatiful square and at one end was the town hall and the other end the cathederal de Santa Ana. The cathederal is huge and very beautiful. I decided to go up to the roof, and at €1.50 was very reasonable. There is a lift, or the brave can tackle the many... More

Nice place to visit if you are interested in historic buildings and such. After visiting Grand Canaria for many years, I have found out that this island is more historic than "seen" in tourist areas. This building is impressiv, but far not the oldest to experience on this beautiful, and iznteresting island to explore.

This is the main church of Vegueta, old town of Las Palmas. The cathedral is very simple, nothing special. But go up to the top - there is an elevator - from there you hava fantastic view on the city. There is also a little museum in the former cloister.

The cathedral is typical of its periodic style and fits in well with its surroundings. The square it faces on to is fabulous, especially when the sun is out. A nice coffee shop that serves good food is on that square too. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

very nice, but I wouldn't consider it anything special, apart for the architecture of the colonnade, which joins the ceiling as to resemble a forest, where the columns are the trees and the branches form the ceiling.

We visited here in March. It is set in the old town with lots of little cobbled streets. The inside is amazing and well worth a visit.

The impressive Catedral de Santa Ana presides over the heart of the Barrio Vegueta, the old atmospheric quarter of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria's capital city. The twin-towered Cathedral, the first church in the Canaries, was built on the orders of Los Reyes Catolicos, Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon, after Gran Canaria was conquered in...

A lovely colonial cathedral with a small museum within. Cheap fees for the lift which offers grand views of the surrounding districts and the sea from high up above. Definitely a worthwhile visit.
