Impressive old cathedral

We went to visit it on a Sunday, because we were visiting the old town hall opposite it, and there was a mass on so we couldn't really walk round much, but it looked beautiful.

The admission fee is small and the church is lovely, there is also several rooms with exhibits of relics and painting from the Island's catholic past.

It is very close to casa de colon, one of the city's main attractions. The cathedral is a stunning, big building with a nice surrounding. There are good places to eat around it, too.

The view of the cathedral from the square in front is magnificent despite its gloomy grey colour. The entrance to the bell tower is to the right of the main door and there is a small entrance fee. Either take the lift or walk up the stairs as we did to the top where you are treated to a wonderful... More

We got the yellow bus from Santa Catalina Park (1 or 12 gets you there for 1.40 euro) to Vegueta - the stop near the market is close. We went up the tower, then in the cathedral itself and quickly looked at the sacred art museum - we had to be quick it was nearly closing time, but nevertheless I... More

Ok, it doesn't have the 'wow' factor like some other cathedrals in major European cities but it is a worthy of a visit. €3 for entry to the cathedral and museum and an additional €1.50 to access the tower (different entrance.) We thought it value for money and an interesting diversion from the hustle and bustle of city life. The... More

The city's Catholic Cathedral is near the shore and its best feature is the view from the tower. This is accessible by a small charge for the lift and short stairs. The views from the tower and the balcony between the towers give a nice overview of the local area. The interior of the Cathedral is also worth a visit... More

A lift takes you to the top of the tower - great views over the old town and the harbour. Can get busy so you may have a wait but it will be worth it. Walk down the side street and go into the church, The Neo-classical facade hides and interior of Gothic vaults resting on slender columns. Baroque pulpits,... More

The surrounding and the church is beautiful on the outside, however inside it's just an average dome with a boring museum that you have to pay to visit. It's very inexpensive so if you have time to kill you might pay the entrance go into the church and walk around for about 10 minutes (tops). If you have a limited... More
