Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art
Don't miss its mosaic of colours or its elegantly crafted religious carvings.
Look at the corridor!
If you visit the Catedral de Las Palmas, take advantage of this: just in the side corridor of the church, you'll find the Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro in which is known as Patio de los Naranjos where the largest collection of religious art in the whole island nestles in its interior. The museum has five rooms in which you'll find some real historic treasures of scared art which has been stored in relation with Gran Canaria, either for having been elaborated on the land, or for having played an important role in its history. Especially remarkable pieces are the figure of Santa Catalina, for example, which is an effigy that came from the church of Puerto de la Luz from the 16th century, or various barroque carvings from the 18th and 19th centuries. The Sala Capitular is a must-see which houses the traditional polychrome mosaic. The Museo Diocesano is linked to the cathedral through the Renaissance-style Puerta del Aire.
