Driving route through Arucas and Teror

Gran Canaria, the third largest of the Canary Islands hides many treasures If you dock in Puerto de La Luz, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of Gran Canaria (located at the north-eastern tip of the island), you should take a taxi or hired car and visit two very attractive and popular tourist destinations, as are Arucas and Teror, in the n
From Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Arucas
Departing from Puerto de La Luz in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and taking the North Highway for about 17 kilometres, we come to Arucas (21 minutes by car). Its coast has areas that are popular with swimmers and surfers, such as El Puertillo, Bañaderos and Quintanilla. Here we find the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista. Neo-Gothic in style, it features Italian sculptures and paintings from the Flemish and Andalusian schools. Also recommended are strolls through Gourie Park and Las Hespérides Botanical Gardens, built in 1880.
From Arucas to Teror
You cannot leave Arucas without a visit to the Arehucas Distillery, which produces the most rum in Spain. If we continue along the road to the centre of the island, in 28 minutes, we will come to Teror, an essential place of pilgrimage that houses the figure of the patron saint of Gran Canaria: the Virgin of El Pino, who appeared in 1481. Teror will amaze you right from the start with its stone streets, its architectural heritage and the square and church. Other recommended visits are the Episcopal Palace, properties with typical Canaries balconies and Las Dominicas Gardens.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
