Favourite Cities and Hotels in Spain

The capital of Cantabria is yet another gem in Spain. Home to just under 200,000 people, Santander is a beautiful peninsula city with perhaps the most exquisite beach resorts in the country. A popular summer paradise, Sardinero beach has golden sand, idyllic weather and many leisure and entertainment options. The coastal area of the city has been a retreat for the royal family of Spain, who built the magnificent Palacio Real de la Magdalena at the turn of the last century.

The Bay of Santander has been a vital port since the dawn of the Roman Empire and was a maritime base for the Kingdom of Castile. Trade with the New World went through Santander's harbor as well and as a result of all this, the city has considerable historic significance today. Though the medieval heart of the city was razed by fire in 1941, Santander still has many terrific landmarks intact, from the Palacio de Pronillo to the Seminario de Monte Corbán.

Santander Rundown

Located in northern Spain, Santander is a coastal city packed with festivals, art, culture, history and leisure activities. As the capital of the province Cantabria, Santander is very accessible from other parts of Spain as well as major cities in Europe. The city itself is also quite accessible, as the distance from one end to another is around 6 km (4 miles), and the attractions in the city centre are all within a short walking distance. The most popular tourist attraction is the Palacio de la Magdalena, where the Spanish royalty used to holiday in the early 1900s. There are a number of fascinating museums, including the Museo Taurino (Bullfighting Museum), Museo Municipal de Bellas Artes (Municipal Museum of Arts) and Museo de Prehistoria y Arqueología de Cantabria (Prehistoric and Archaeological Museum of Cantabria). ...
