An ancient landmark with lots to offer. Grand, sweeping nave with multiple small chapels inside the main church. Visitors with small children should be aware that one of the chapels contains the remarkably preserved remains of a beloved local bishop on full display in a glass case. Stunning paintings, intricate carvings and sculpture everywhere you look. I stand firmly in... More

In the Vegueta quarter just opposite the Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana (where also the Tourist Office is to be found) is the twin-towered Santa Ana Cathedral where eight bronze dogs guard the cathedral. The Cathedral in predominantly Neo-Classical style and the long, thin columns that support the curved white ceiling inside are Gothic in design. This Cathedral is well... More

As always catedral is a must for travelers. Place has a nice inner-yard and some art. The tower doesn't give that good view as you might get impression from other review IMHO.

Fantastic panoramic views of the city from the tower. Just a few euros to travel up by lift. There was an additional higher floor if you wanted with only a few steps. Go on a clear day.

Building dates from 1500 and is well worth a visit. You buy a combined ticket for the Art Museum and the Cathedral (€4). There are several architectural styles and decorations here, thanks to the four centuries that elapsed while it was being built. The neoclassical facade is XIXth century. There are many tastefully decorated side altars. Overall a visit to... More

We came here with great expectations and were disappointed. Confusing signs entice you to taking a pointless elevator ride to the "top" with a nothing view. Access to see the interior of the cathedral was a further charge. A charge to enter a Catholic Church !!

We were on the trip with our 8 month old baby, just walking around. There is many nice places round this church and the church it self is pretty.

If by any chance your path leads you to Las Palmas the top of the Catedral de Santa Ana is must visit. The view that you will experience will leave you breathless. You must use alternative entrance in order to catch the elevator that will elevate to the Therese (balcony)
