Another fantastic building to visit when in las palmas.
Great to see the facade on the cathedral.
A good place to take some photos.

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 entrance to the church is actually on a side street and going up the tower is at the front of the street. If you have a hop on hop off ticket, going up the tower is free, otherwise a few euros would do. A lift and a few stairs will take you to some impressive views of the area.

The three euro charge to go into the church and museum is worth the time, money and effort. My favorite part was the impressive courtyard area.

The museum is actually on an upper floor. Artifacts, paintings and church related items are on display. Photographs are allowed.

Maybe not as impressive as other churches in Spain, but nonetheless, there is a spiritual energy that resonates from this holy place.

We were so looking forward to our visit to the Catedral, but were disappointed. It was very plain inside and it appears it needs lots of money spending on it - it was not what we expected!

The Cathedral was built in the years 1500, Gothic style, by the architect Don Diego Montaude. It's very large, and you can find there the catholic atmosphere of Spanish Middle Age.
Between monuments and paintings it's available and a mummy of a bishop.
If you climb on the terrace of the cathedral, you'll have a great panorama of the city, and a amazing view of the Santa Ana Square.
