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.

The tower of Santa Ana offers scenic views of the old city, water front and the ocean. Well worth the 1.5 euro donation.

During my visit I did not get to go inside but I did pay 1,50€ to go up into the tower. It was so worth it!!! You get an amazing 360 view of Las Palmas and all it has to offer. Definitely a MUST SEE place when visiting this island.

This15th-century cathedral dominates the city's main square, Plaza de Santa Ana, It is an enormous, imposing structure.The interior of the Gothic-style building features an elaborate central altar and a display of church ornaments originally from St Paul's Cathedral in London.
