Santander

— 7 nights

Spain's Most Elegant City

Known for its prime north coast location and elegant city center, Santander remains the central destination for tourism and commerce in the whole Cantabrian region.
Get out of town with these interesting Santander side-trips: Comillas (Comillas' Beach, Palacio de Sobrellano, &more), Cueva El Soplao (in Celis) and Herrerias (Mirador de Rabago & Ferreria de Cades). Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Peninsula of Magdalena. The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Palacio de La Magdalena, examine the collection at Museo Maritimo del Cantabrico, meet the residents at Parque de la Naturaleza de Cabarceno, and enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Primera de El Sardinero.

Plan my Santander trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Beaches · Zoos · Architectural Buildings
A region rich in archeological attractions, Cantabria is perhaps best known for Altamira cave, often called the "Sistine Chapel of Prehistoric Art." A land of lush vegetation and colorful artistic heritage, it’s also home to numerous nature reserves, mountain valleys, and short but very rapid rivers. Offering a little of everything, its sandy beaches and modern seaside resorts have brought about a boom in international tourism. Deeper inland, quiet country roads and an extensive network of trails offer a chance for leisurely sightseeing in this rugged region on foot, or by car or bicycle.
