San Francisco Quarter

The Barrio de San Francisco was established at the same time as the neighbouring San Juan quarter, around 24 June 1483.

As a small hill known as Santa María la Antigua, it was the place chosen by (or relegated to) craftsmen and shopkeepers who relied on the people of San Juan to earn their living.

The houses and streets are the best remaining example of the usual urban design of Gran Canaria at the time.

Visitors can see the Church of Saint Francis, erected on the site of the old Santa Maria la Antigua chapel.
