This church and the whole village is a fantastic place to visit. Spectacular and with cosy streets all around it, plus that you have the rum distillery close by as well.

In the midst of a somewhat bland town this church which is the size of a cathedral really makes an impact. We loved the high ceilings and soft music. Enjoy

There are two separate listings for the same church. I reviewed this church in the other though; take a look under: Parroquia de San Juan Bautista.

It looks magnificent from the outside and the surrounding area was pleasant too. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go inside- not sure whether it’s usual in Gran Canaria, but it was closed at 2pm.
