Centenary of Teror Spring Water Route
CENTENARY OF TEROR SPRING WATER IS OUR FIRST ROUTE FOR THE 5TH EDITION OF THE gran canaria walking FESTIVAL.
This year, our first meeting will take place on Wednesday (2nd November), which will extend the Gran Canaria Walking Festival´s length in the week starting earlier than previous years.
The place, the time and the rest of information about the route is available in the following link: click here.
You will be able to select if you want a bus shuttle from the South of the island or from the city center of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
In this route you will discover the notorious Finca de Osorio, located in the town of Teror.
We will travel around its most beautiful and symbolic corners. Osorio is settled in the rural park of Doromas, where the landscapes combine mountains, ravines, woods and crops. You will get to know a model of use and sustainability of our natural resources.
The Finca de Osorio is at the foot of the mountain that has its name: Osorio (968 m.), and it was opened in the second half of the XIX century. Since 1981, the Cabildo of Gran Canaria holds its property. However, descendants of many peasant families still live there as leaseholders. The Finca is unique in the island, as it gathers many natural, visual and human values which confer this area a high natural interest.
Once we´ve ended this section of the route, we will be heading to Teror, one of the towns in Gran Canaria which has earned a remarkable historic value due to two reasons: its water and the "Virgen del Pino".
Teror´s name meant "water place" for the ancient indigenous population.
Its relevance was due to its wealth in water and springs, where the Fuente Agria stands out. The healing properties of these spring waters located in the Villa de Teror are the starting point of Fuente Agria´s knowledge. These waters began to be bottled in the early years of the XX century, which is why we will celebrate its first century of life (1916-2016) in this route across the village of Teror.
The "Centenary of Teror Spring Water" will be held in Casa del Borbullón, where we will be hosted by Aguas de Teror and the town hall´s representatives and we will enjoy a snack as the culmination of a wonderful route.
