One of the main place to visit in Gran Canaria; in the historical downtown part of Las Palmas. Can't give 5 stars, just for the nearest Parking (quite far away)

This Cathedral is Roman Catholic and was built in the 1500’s. It was the original Cathedral in the Canary Islands. The Gothic Pointed architectural style dominates the structure. The various naves are quite impressive, but the stain glass windows need a bit of help. The...More

Pretty majestic place and people are very friendly. Just beautiful. The square is a wonderful place to take group photos in front of the Catedral. We were able to go into the cathedral and it was just breathtaking.

Work started on building the cathedral in 1500, 22 years after the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was founded. Since then, four different architects have been involved in its design. With the result, it features late gothic, neoclassical, and baroque styles. You can...More

lovely old cathedral with garden and a tower. You can see all of Las Palmas from the top and there’s a lift! 3 euros for the tower.

Usually, I am not really a big fan of cathedrals but the light in this one is something very special due to the unusual stained glass windows, The museum is also interesting
