Teror old town

A town born around the legend of the Virgin of the Pine
Teror, in north Gran Canaria, is one of the oldest towns in the Canary Islands. Founded after the appearance of the Virgin in 1481 and declared a pilgrimage town at the ends of the 15th Century, Teror boasts a considerable religious heritage including its church, convents and the original houses of local noble families. Real de la Plaza street has been the social and commercial heart of the town for 500 years
Spend a Sunday discovering sweet traditions and the famous chorizo
Teror’s pastry makers and bakers are famous for their sweet treats in Gran Canaria. The Císter convent sells the town’s famous spreadable chorizo sausage, shortbread, turnovers, marzipan treats and aniseed cakes. At the nearby Finca de Osorio estate you can walk off the calories on several guided walks through nature. Teror is lively on Sunday mornings thanks to a street market in the main square that sells a wide range of local produce, jewelry and wooden and textile handicrafts.

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.
- 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'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
