Cathedral of Santa Ana

The first church to be built on the Canaries is one of the most impressive. It features an imposing gray façade and ornate bell towers.

View the striking Cathedral of Santa Ana, also known as Las Palmas Cathedral, rising high above nearby buildings. Explore the interior to discover stylish architecture and paintings by several local artists.

Make your way through the courtyard of lush palm trees in front of the Cathedral of Santa Ana and stand before the building’s dark façade. Admire the twin bell towers with their neat, round tops and notice architectural features such as the ornate rose window above the entrance. The predominantly neo-classical architecture is typical of the 15th century when the cathedral was constructed. 

Step through the grand, arched door into the spacious interior of the cathedral. The long, thin columns that support the curved white ceiling are Gothic in design and appear reminiscent of the palm trees outside. 

Head to the main altar and admire the shimmering lamp that hangs from the ceiling. This transparent glass feature was made in Genoa, Italy. Standing in the center of the cathedral, you will be able to see all of the building’s exquisite stained-glass windows. In addition to the striking rose window, look for a number of colorful depictions of St. Ann and the Virgin Mary in the windows of the other walls. 

Walk from the main vault to the Sacred Art Museum in the south wing of the cathedral. Look around the gallery to find a selection of Spanish sculptures that have been brought together over the past four centuries.

Be sure to look in other parts of the cathedral to find the work of two of the most famous artists from the Canaries. José Luján Pére's 1793 sculpture of Christ is at the Chapter House while elsewhere around the cathedral you can see several pieces by Juan de Miranda, the great 18th-century Gran Canaria painter.  

The Cathedral of Santa Ana is located a short drive from the middle of Las Palmas. It is open all week although times are restricted on the weekend because of services. There is a small admission fee.
