Welcome to Teror
In spite of its name, Teror does anything but inspire fear. The central Plaza Nuestra Señora del Pino and Calle Real are lined with picturesque old houses, painted in bright colours with leaning walls and wooden balconies. The only jarring building is the modern Auditorio de Teror, just west of the basilica. Aesthetics aside, it has admirably provided the town with a welcome cultural venue. There’s a small farmers market in the plaza on Saturday mornings, with stalls selling local goodies like the deliciously garlic-laden chorizo de Teror (sausage), which should scare off those vampires for a while. The Sunday market is larger and more commercial. It's located 20km southwest of Las Palmas.
