These are the statues of the big dogs from which the island apparently got its name. We sat in the sun and watched the people and birds for quite a while. There are some very pretty old buildings, including the old town hall and the cathedral.

This is where the tourists gather to view the most interesting sights of Las Palmas . Lots of restaurants , bars , caffés and souvenir shops nearby . The tourist Information Office is in the building facing the Cathedral at the other end of the Square ,

I think this plaza is overrated. Also cathedral closed. Only entry vis the museum which you had to pay for. I think this is disgraceful that you can't enter a catholic church (unless you are going to Mass)

Perfect place to sit and relax, perhaps enjoy a picnic after a visit to the local attractions. Even on a windy day a sheltered spot can be found though there's not much protection from the rain. Good spot for a photo of the cathedral facade.

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.
