  • During the day the plaza in front of the cathedral were school children playing soccer and on Friday night there was a live band with stands around selling drinks. Good times.  more »
  • Beautiful, large. Visit obliged. Magnificent paintings. Citywide views superbly from the Bell Tower ride in the elevator.

  • Also the body that we have heard to sound personally moved us the spirit. The size of the Cathedral is striking.

  • 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.
