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.

The cathedral has a rather square shape. The interior is very light and impressive in its scale and black and white simplicity. There is a nice courtyard off which you will find the museum of ecclesiastical art with some interesting exhibits as weel as the more run of the mill art and silverware. You can climb the tower which I... More

just 30 mins walk away from the new part of the capital, this part of the city has a totally different atmosphere and was lucky enough to have a ceremony in the catedral, so was a very nice experience, Do not miss having a walk in old town!!!

Las Palmas, is mainly, a touristic beach destination. This Cathedral is worthwhile to visit. We´re not religious people, but we love to visit Cathedrals. This one - we didn´t take the guided tour, perhaps we should have... - is recent, more colonial type, quite simple, not so rich as others. Nevertheless, it´s a nice visit, to the top of the... More

Unfortunately I was missing the information about cathedral at the moment of the visit. There are still some enigmas inside for me. I am going to dig for more informaiton on it and will not tell you the secrets. This cathedral is different from many many traditional cathedrals I've been in. The collection in the gallery of the 2nd floor... More

1.50 € gets a lift ride to near the top of one of the two towers then 30 steps gets you an even better view of the capital. The csthedral is only 3 € and worth a look.
