Pleasant place to sit, and those dogs!

These are the statues of the big dogs from which the island apparently got its name. We sat in the sun and watched the people and birds for quite a while. There are some very... read more

This is the iconic plaza for the old district of Vegueta in Las Palmas. It's a must see. The dog statues in front of the cathedral are favorites for photographers, and each one is unique. The plaza is perfect for photographers in any weather or time of day, but at night it's particularly pretty when the lights come on.

Its a shame that city like Las Palmas doesn't have such a beautiful church, judging by its facade, restored. The facing square with its canine tributes and surrounding buildings is very pretty. the facade of the cathedral is a classic, its just a sham that you can't see the interior. There is a museum which has an entry fee, just... More

These are the statues of the big dogs from which the island apparently got its name. We sat in the sun and watched the people and birds for quite a while. There are some very pretty old buildings, including the old town hall and the cathedral.

This is where the tourists gather to view the most interesting sights of Las Palmas . Lots of restaurants , bars , caffés and souvenir shops nearby . The tourist Information Office is in the building facing the Cathedral at the other end of the Square ,

I think this plaza is overrated. Also cathedral closed. Only entry vis the museum which you had to pay for. I think this is disgraceful that you can't enter a catholic church (unless you are going to Mass)

Perfect place to sit and relax, perhaps enjoy a picnic after a visit to the local attractions. Even on a windy day a sheltered spot can be found though there's not much protection from the rain. Good spot for a photo of the cathedral facade.

A lovely place to sit and relax after visiting the Cathedral. Interesting statues of dogs at the steps but not sure why they are there. Popular with the locals.

Unusually, this square was not added to by the cathedral on the eastern side of the square. The square itself is pretty, but the cathedral's facade doesn't improve things, as it should in a square like this.

The lovely square sits in front of the cathedral of Santa Ana. It is surrounded by impressive old buildings in classical Spanish colonial style and is well worth a visit.
