A lovely place to sit and relax after visiting the Cathedral. Interesting statues of dogs at the steps but not sure why they are there. Popular with the locals.

Unusually, this square was not added to by the cathedral on the eastern side of the square. The square itself is pretty, but the cathedral's facade doesn't improve things, as it should in a square like this.

The lovely square sits in front of the cathedral of Santa Ana. It is surrounded by impressive old buildings in classical Spanish colonial style and is well worth a visit.

The plaza is very animated with a lot of bars and restaurants and numerous retirees playing dominos. Very easy access by bus and cars.

The Plaza is probably not somewhere you would visit on its own, but as part of a walking tout of Vegueta - the old town. It is a rectangular plaza with the Cathedral at one end and the town hall at the other end. Along the sides are many beautiful buildings, including the Bishop's residence near the Cathedral with a...

A great place to visit, has sun all the year around - lovely people and great location. Short stops are not the best option, as you would need a couple of weeks to explore the initial stops.

Well, there is no choice if you visit Las Palmas and go around walking on the older part of the town, Vegueta, which for me us a must for a few hours. Cathedral, Santo Domingo are must see churches on the area, together with the local markets where you can taste amazing local food as well on the numerous restaurants... More

Lovely little square in front of the Cathedral. Good place to sit and take the whole area in. Plenty of seats around. The history abounds if you gaze around. Lots of people seem to congregate here. Would not describe it as amazing but certainly worth a wander to if you are in the area.
