  • lovely old cathedral with garden and a tower. You can see all of Las Palmas from the top and there’s a lift! 3 euros for the tower.  more »
  • The Cathedral itself is not really appealing. It presents a rather plain exterior architecture. The façade gives one a square lined with Palm trees. The Interior of the building is quite impressive by its size, no more. On the other hand, for the modest price of €1.50, it is possible to climb a staircase that leads to the top of the building and in one of the towers. The panorama of a part of the city of Las Palmas is striking, as well as on the commercial port. You will have to pay an additional €3 to visit the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art. A few beautiful pieces but nothing exceptional.
