When first time I was in Arucas I was walking around the city center. All rouds turn me to the hugest building in the city. It is incredible church. When I think about the city I see the view for city with the church and rum factory.

In a stark contrast to the brilliant white and brown buildings of the surrounding streets, this church is an uncompromising strong grey, and is dedicated to St John the Baptist. At odds with this small Canarian town, the early c20th architecture would not look out of place in sombe Glasgow, such is the grey forebidding appearance . But it is... More

An interesting church - on the way into the center from the parking area. For anyone interested in Catholic churches this would be great.

There is something strange about this place. Despite its 'gothic' style, they only finished building it 40 years ago. And they are quite upfront about the fact that they chose the style to show off the skills of the local stone mason trade. The result is a church that doesn't look like it belongs in the place, and is only... More

A impressing building in a charming town. Well worth a visit both the town and the church. Make a stop here.

We stopped off here for 30 minutes as part of an Island "highlights" tour. It is a nice looking building and worth spending half an hour looking round it but I wouldn't spend much longer than that.
