  • This imposing gothic church towered above Arucas. Inside it is prayerful and peaceful. There are wonderful rose windows and many statues depicting the stations of the cross. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • San Juan Bautista is a beautiful baroque destination. Arucas is an interesting little village to visit. I went there by local bus from Las Palmas, which lasted about 20 minutes. Easy target. At the same time I visited a local rum factory. A nice day trip destination.

  • It was built with stones from the stonework of Arucas. Neo-Gothic style. Its stained glass windows stand out. One of the must-sees on the island of Gran Canaria. It is so spectacular that they call it the Cathedral of the island.

  • If you’re on Gran Canaria during Christmas season, this is absolutely lovely inside. The decor of celebration is sumptuous and the nativity scenes set up around the transept are something to enjoy at a leisurely pace. The acoustics are well suited to the organ. Don’t be put off by snobbish or xenophobic reviews; enjoy a church that the good people of Arucas love. You’ll be richer for it. (Wish I could post my photo!!)
  • Beautiful, dark stone church above a historical town of Arucas. Great place to stop while exploring the island.
  • Very old and very beautiful architectural, religious masterpiece from Gran Canaria. Visible from all around the area, the church is a definite symbol from the small settlement.
  • This Church is a Gothic Wonder! Built in only 8 years starting around 1909. Absolutely beautiful workmanship only the Art Nouveau era could boast- but this is more Gothic than Art Novesu. It rises in the distance as you drive over the sharp hills like a hidden shrine in the cleft of the mountains. Absolutely a Must See.
  • Beautiful church, open till 12.30, and at afternoon from 16.30 on.
