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.
