Buying handicrafts next to Teror church
As a local pilgrimage site and religious centre lots of Teror’s products are linked to the church’s famous Virgin Mary figurine. The town’s famous spicy sausage, the Chorizo de Teror is also sold everywhere along with a wide range of handicrafts, local fruit and vegetables, cakes and pastries, and modern and traditional clothes. Declared a market town in 1932, Teror caters to everybody and it would almost be a miracle if you didn’t have a good time and find a great souvenir to buy.
