  • In comparison with others cathedrals of Spain it of them palms, is rather poor if remove the excellent altar with their respective stained glass, the Cathedral has a State of semi abandonment inappropriate for the area in where is, is come clearly them humidities of the building and the lack of cleaning in some stays. It will pray and pray, but you must also have some neat things. We can find carvings of the Carver ran guiense Lujan Perez and other dedications but very left the Cathedral.

  • Mustsee including the 'museo' (3 euro's). The tower visit will cost you 1,5 euro extra.
  • Historical cathedral that only costs 3 euros to get in, well worth every penny. Inside you will not only see the cathedral but also the rooms and items who belonged to the priests. If you're feeling adventurous, go see The roof top views. Gem amongst things to see in triana.
  • Amazing place. We only visited the tower to have a look at the surrounding city. The way up costs EUR2 which is not much for the view you get from the top. Have a cup of coffee in the near small café and enjoy the beauty of this catedral.
  • Wow well worth the €3 entrance fee to see the museum and cathedral!
  • A lovely Spanish-style structure. Located in the historic district of Las Palmas. Around develops around the town. You can climb, paying, and enjoy the view over most of the city.
