  • Fine palm tree-like pillars. Otherwise not of great interest. Entry to the adjoining Museum of religious art is included in the ticket.  more »
  • Impressive views from the tower but little information on the history and architecture of the church  more »
  • Historical and cultural. Awesome 👍🙏
  • Magnificient, twin-towered Catholic Cathedral. The main Cathedral on the whole of the Canary Islands. Very impressive and large construction. Wonderful and rich interior. The architectural styles are Gothic Pointed (based on arches) and the Renaissance. There is a viewpoint on the roof of the cathedral. Access by lift. The cathedral houses Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art (separate entrance). The Cathedral of Santa Ana is a historical point in Las Palmas absolutely worth to see. I enjoyed my visit in January 2015.
