Santander, the elegant Spanish town

Santander, the elegant Spanish town

Santander is an elegant Spanish town spreading over a long bay and facing the golf of Gascoigne. The town is located in the northern part of Spain and is an ideal place to stopover during a trip. Its spectacular bay and marine atmosphere will conquer you.

About Spain

Discover the old town of Santander, where you will find noble buildings in a stunning natural setting. Its marine and commercial tradition is linked to a century-old tourist vocation. Do not miss a visit to the El Sardinero beach. Have a stroll on its promenade up to the La Magdalena peninsula. The cultural treasure of the city is enhanced by the Routes of Santiago de Compostela and all the nearby grottos.
