City overview

The Cantabrian port of Santander truly is one of Spain’s best kept secrets, as well as one of its most impressive. Crisscrossed by sweeping plazas bathed in bon vivance, Santander rightfully enjoys a place among some of the country’s grandest cities. Where the Gothic architecture runs out, Renaissance and Baroque begin, and when all that comes to an end, strips of sandy beaches separate the city from the Bay of Biscay. But that’s not all, for to the south crest the rugged summits of the Picos de Europa, the preferred terrain of the Cantabrian brown bear.

Travellers take flights to Santander to see many of its fine sights, including some of the region’s most impressive buildings. Be sure to investigate Plaza de Pompo and its surroundings, before making a trek to the Palacete del Embarcadero and the medieval Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. There is also a strong casino culture in the city, with all the action happening on Plaza de Italia, moments from El Sardinero beach.

Alternatively, indulge the brain and explore one of Santander’s many fine museums. The Prehistoric and Archaeological Museum of Cantabria is a particularly good example of its genre, while the Bullfighting Museum provides an in-depth look into one of Spain’s most famous traditions. Additionally, a wealth of pieces are on display at The Municipal Museum of Arts, including paintings and sculpture from the 15th to 20th centuries, as well as Goya’s famous painting of King Fernando VII.

Finally, Cantabria is famed for its cuisine, and Santander hosts more than its fair share of fine restaurants. Take a walk around the waterfront and the old town areas to find your eatery of choice, but be prepared to wait for a table at more popular establishments. Local specialties are many, including classics such as fried squid, clam casserole and a celebrated bean stew prepared with collard greens, bacon, pork ribs, black pudding and chorizo.
