  • A cozy room with playful children and older people who have time for a rest on one of the benches. Set up here a bit and soak up the atmosphere for you and enjoy the beautiful buildings.

  • The Plaza de Santa Ana with the old administration building, the Church of St. Ana, and the restored buildings, is a very nice attraction and top tourist destination in the historic district of Las Palmas. Gladly we come back and therefore recommend the destination.

  • "Old town" in the "capital", it is easiest to take bus No. 91 (direct bus), and walk 10-15 minutes (direction South West) to the old town, where you can visit such as the Santa Ana Cathedral. We have also visited this area in Easter-and seen amazing Easter processions.
