  • Highlights of this Cathedral are the pillars holding the Cathedral in the shape of Palm trees, is a fairly simple Church, without much ornateness of figures, altars, etc. You will not take much time to be in it.

  • With the title say everything but I would add that it is worth much climbing to the Cathedral with the elevator (very affordable), the views are spectacular.

  • The Cathedral is very well preserved. It is at the same time sumptuous in its simplicity. Also of interest is the Museum and peace that reigns in the cloister is a must ...

  • 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.
