Ermita de San Antonio Abad
This religious building is closely linked to the history of Gran Canaria. A plaque on the facade commemorates the day when Christopher Columbus stopped off here to pray in 1492 on his way to the New World. In fact, this chapel was built in the 17th century on the site of the first church on Gran Canara, the San Antón Hermitage, erected in the 15th century. No services are held here at present, but you can visit it. Admission is free. You just have to ask permission from Dolores Sopeña, at the Instituto Catequista, Calle Reyes Catolicos 33, between 9a and 2p.
