Teror is my one of the best city on the island. Is one of the most important religion places on GC. Basilica is beautiful inside and it is worth to go there on Sunday-to feel the atmosfere. Even the weather was bad, Teror is worth to see.

This important building is a monument to the faith dating from the C17th with interesting side chapels with revered statues - the significance of which, and story behind them were, unfortunately something that was...

Great stop on the way back from Roque Nublo to Las Palmas, the street leading to the church has a particularly beautiful set of typical Canarian houses.

The trip is not too long but well worth the time and trouble because it will acquaint you with the interior of Gran Canaria and what it... More

This is a surprise! An elaborate Cathedral in the heart of an inland small town. And it's highly ornate, full of history and attached to a museum with a wonderful collection of liturgical artefacts. The centre-piece of the basilica - Our Lady of the Pines -- is patroness of the Canary Islands so it's no surprise that nothing is spared... More

Teror is a lovely little town in the interior of Gran Canaria. We visited the Basilica late morning, the church closed at noon and initially we were disappointed that we couldn't see the treasures behind the altar. However the Treasure Room opened a little later (after 1pm). The entrance is at the back of the church and is worth visiting... More

Visited this church at the same time as the Sunday market, the church is stunning well worth the visit, the town of Teror is beautiful and the road trip up to here is incredible. If you visit on a Sunday please remember the locals are worshipping on a Sunday so it would be bad manners to take photos during the... More
