Leave the Port of Las Palmas by air-conditioned minivan, and travel out of the city to the traditional Canarian village of Teror, some 14 miles (22km) from Las Palmas. Almost unchanged for centuries, the charming village is home to colonial architecture, markets and history-rich churches. On a walking tour, learn how Teror is recognized as a place of Christian pilgrimage, and see the famous Baroque church — Basilica de la Virgen del Pino — built to celebrate the Virgin Mary, who locals refer to as 'our lady of the pines.'
In the afternoon, hit the highway and travel to Bandama Caldera. The 4,000-year-old volcanic crater measures some 656-feet 200-meters deep and is covered in volcanic ash as well some interesting species of Gran Canaria plants. Enjoy some free time to take photos of the impressive natural feature and maybe enjoy a coffee at a nearby golf course.
Before returning to the Port of Las Palmas, call in at a local wine cellar near the caldera. Enjoy a tasting of local red and white wine alongside a selection of artisan cheese. After learning about wine production in Gran Canaria and the mineral-rich volcanic soil, return to your minivan, and then finish you day with a drop-off at the port.
