We stopped on a day trip of the Island here, it is a lovely old town with wooden balconies on the old houses, the Basillica is beautiful quite dark in there. We really enjoyed the whole town it has a really lovely atmosphere.

The Basilica's interior is surprisingly ornate and well worth a visit. We took a Global bus up to Teror from San Telmo station and it was a scenic ride up to this beautiful mountain town.
