It is a nice place to have something to drink with direct views to the cathedral. There is a small square so children can run and play safely because traffic is forbidden, just pedestrians.

Got dropped off here by our taxi, was a very pretty square. At one end is the huge cathederal, at the other end the town hall( where i picked up a free map). A few cafes in the square and a nice place to chill.

Amazing and colourful houses with a lot of bars with local tapas. When visiting The Canary Islands don't miss this place.

Interesting buildings on both sides from an architectural point of view. Right in front of the cathedral is an unusual display of statues of various dog breeds.

As for the church, the front square is nice (as the whole neighbourhood), and worthy a walk in, but do not expect anything special.

The square was being laid out for a theatre performance hence only a small area was usable. However the signature groups of men were still in the cafes playing dominos and cards.

This is a nice, big, open square in the centre of town, with a big Cathedral, worth a wander through while strolling through town

Even if there isn't much to do on the plaza tself, it's one of the must visit - must take photos -places in Las Palmas. Beautiful buildings, dog statues, nice place the sit if weather permitting. Cafes, little shops, museums and restaurants near by. Easy access by bus to Vegueta from other parts of Las Palmas.
