  • The city's Catholic Cathedral is near the shore and its best feature is the view from the tower. This is accessible by a small charge for the lift and short stairs. The views from the tower and the ba...  more »
  • My partner and I were taken to Las Palmas to experience the old and new part of the capital. We stood first in the old part, where we met lovely old buildings. Where, in particular, Catedral de Santa Ana. Stunningly beautiful and magnificent was the handsome tower with its large and beautiful Catedral space with, among other things. giant pipe organ. We also visited the museum as forefantes in Catedralbygningen. Attached images best describes the stoslående vision of beautiful paintings and figurines. Visits, highly recommended

  • A lift takes you to the top of the tower - great views over the old town and the harbour. Can get busy so you may have a wait but it will be worth it. Walk down the side street and go into the church,...  more »

  • 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.
