The town of Teror houses some of Gran Canaria's treasures. Teror will surprise you!
Charm in every corner.
Declared as a "Conjunto Histórico Artístico" (historical-artistic group) in 1979, many Canarians travel to this place on the island at different times of the year, as the Basílica a la Virgen del Pino is located here which is the patron saint of the island. As we saw earlier, it's the epitome of religious construction in Gran Canaria, and even the architecture alone is well worth a visit to the town. But the excursion mustn't end here: it's still necessary to go round the square of Plaza de Teror, and go down towards Alameda passing by the row of balconies throughout the streets which are still paved, and show the colonial houses that are so typical on the island. It seems like time has stood still due to the walls. There are another two things in this town that you can't miss: on one side, you have the central Plaza Teresa de Bolívar where you can observe the statue of the liberator, Simón Bolívar; and on the other side, there's the beautiful and historical natural spring, which has become quite a symbol of the town.
