Teror: the innate charm of the island

Teror: the innate charm of the island

On the windward side of Gran Canaria is a place that leaves its mark for its beauty and naturalness: Teror. Highlighting it as one of the “most charming” towns and an important pilgrimage destination, reference websites like TripAdvisor enhance the delicacy of its typical Canarian architecture, its wooden balconies and, of course, the Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Pino.

In the midlands of Northern Gran Canaria, Teror seems to be the heart of the island, bordering Arucas at North, Santa Brigida at East, San Mateo in the South and Valleseco at West. And this same heart breathes the air of two natural enclaves of an incalculable value: the Doramas Rural Park (Finca de Osorio) and the protected area of Pino Santo. Characterized by its mountainous territory as well as unique vegetation and relief, Teror has unmistakable landscapes that enchant us with the scent of laurel. In spring and summer we are embraced by the clean air and the pure sun. In autumn and winter, the dew and the fog give this place a unique and oddly cozy atmosphere.

The historic center of Teror is certainly a great heritage and one of the most important patrimonies of the islands. Its religious, social and cultural essences inundate its streets, houses, squares and monuments. The basilica, one of the most prominent and important buildings of the Canary Islands, holds the title of Minor Basilica and National Monument, and shelters with love and devotion our Virgen del Pino, patron saint of the Canarian Diocese and protagonist of Teror´s main celebration every eighth of September. It is no wonder that the basilica´s surrounding was declared Historic-Artistic Site. In this idyllic setting, Teror transforms itself every Sunday with its famous street market of more than two centuries of history. Doubtlessly, it is an attraction for visitors and locals, offering typical products of the place: the red chorizo (pork sausage) of an intense smell, its sweet-tasting blood sausage, bread and homemade pastries such as buns or the Canarian nougat, exquisite cheeses, textiles and handicrafts.

This place is also popular for its rich and excellent sources and springs, being Teror´s water one of the most renowned. So much so that many argue that the word “Teror” means “water place”. Naturally, the gofio (cornflour) is another hallmark of this place. Here, the former gofio mills have survived the new times. This way, today Teror still is a major producer of this regional treasure. Get enraptured by Teror during your stay in Hoteles THe: this place will give each of your five senses thousands of sensations.
