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.

. 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.

I was surprised to see such a nice plaza on Tenerife. The square is facing the main church, has a few momunments, nice buiildings all across. You might not be lucky with a photo without tourists or audio equipment as there are many entertainment events taking place. It's a good place to stop for coffee.

This square is a great place to sit, relax & think about the long history of the city & the island. The surrounding buildings are lovely, and so are the many benches for elderly people (like me) to sit on.

Great place to sit and watch the world go by. Strange acoustics though. The noise of the school parties was amplified by the buildings
