The church of San Juan Bautista in Arucas is popularly known under the name of "the cathedral of Arucas" due to its impressiveness.
In the municipality of Arucas, located in the northern area of Gran Canaria, you can find, among other attractions, the popular "Cathedral of Arucas", which is a big tourist attraction and we highly recommend our guests to visit it. The construction began on 19 March 1909 and ended almost 60 years later. The services, however, began to be hold in 1917.
The church is located in the same place where the previous old parish was built in 1515. The current San Juan Bautista Church is an imposing building in the Gothic Revival style that was built by hand without any technology or mechanization and thus embodies the work of local stonemasons.
After visiting the "cathedral", we recommend you to enjoy a coffee in one of the cafes of the church square or one in the nice narrow streets in the historical centre of Arucas.
