Welcome to Teror

There’s a small farmers' market in the plaza on Saturday mornings, with stalls selling local goodies such as the deliciously garlic-laden chorizo de Teror (Teror sausage). The Sunday market is larger and more commercial.

The only building that entirely jars with the town's manifest historical sensibilities is the modern Auditorio de Teror, just west of the basilica.

Teror is located up in the hills 20km southwest of Las Palmas.
