Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana

The central square par excellence.

This square is one of the two main places in Las Palmas, and it's an exceptional point surrounded by the Casas Consistoriales, Palacio Episcopal, Museo Diocesano, and the Casa Regental, which are the most important establishments in the city. And if that weren't enough, it's also here where you'll find the Catedral de Santa Ana, which turns the square into a place that is particularly favourable for starting the touristic visit round the capital. Incidentally, if you ask any local to show you something characteristic about the Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana, they're sure to talk to you about the eight dogs that protect it: the eight statues have been there for so long witnessing the daily to-ing and fro-ing, and it's not known exactly how they appeared or how they remain captured there. The images of these dogs were turned into an icon of the district years ago, and the statues perform as the usual recreation area for young children who ride on their backs every day.
