Pretty square in town

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

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.

Cafes, little shops, museums and restaurants near by. Easy access by bus to Vegueta from other parts of Las Palmas.

. When, at the very end of the 19th century, the six statues of dogs were placed in the the cathedral forecourt, there was outrage from the local population. "Dogs under the nose of Saint Ann!" howled the local rag. But now, of course, they are a much-loved feature, reminding us all of the origin of the name Las Canarias... More

This was a good place to walk around slowly and drink in the atmosphere. Lots of coffee shops to sit and chat. The buildings in the square and the small streets were very picturesque.

Sculptures of the canines the island was originally named after adorn this square. Lovely old buildings are worth a look. Be aware - beggars patrol this area.

This is a different part of the busy city! The square is spacious, surrounded by buildings of great architecture and with the cathedral lying right in front. Great spot for pictures and take the time to have a drink in one of the little bars/ coffee shops. It's really relaxing. We loved the whole neighborhood and wandered around the narrow... More

This square is in the heart of the Vegueta area in Las Palmas, surrounded by old buildings including the Santa Ana Cathedral and guarded by bronze statues of dogs. There are a few shops, cafes and restaurants around the square including a nice Italian. Worth a walk around if you’re in the area or visiting any of the nearby museums.
