Santander

— 5 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.
Step out of Santander to go to Langre and see Playa de Langre, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Peninsula of Magdalena, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ermita de la Virgen del Mar, admire the natural beauty at Jardines de Piquio, and get to know the resident critters at Parque de la Naturaleza de Cabarceno.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Santander using our trip planner.

Barcelona to Santander is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Barcelona in July, with highs in Santander at 26°C and lows at 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Comillas.

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.
