Neighborhood: Las Palmas
Overview

Located in Plaza Santa Ana as a symbol of religious power, this large building as it now stands is the result of extensions to the original 16th century building. The last reform took place towards the end of the second half of the 19th century. At the main entrance there's a half rounded arch on top of a window. The Bishop of the Canary Islands still has an office in his old residence. Admission is free, but you can't go into the Bishop's private quarters or the offices.
