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.

A quite large Cathedral in the town, beautiful building from the outside, very beautiful inside, not as glam as a lot of the catholic cathedrals, I liked its simplicity

The cathedral is quite plain, by Spanish standards, but very pleasant and it gives the place an elegance, rather than being 'over the top'. The stone from which it is built was originally cut from the Playa de las Canteras, hence its name.

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.
