While Santander capital of Cantabria is on Spain's north coast, the original little city faces south to catch what sun it can.

The Bay of Santander provides a natural habour and a haven from the wild Atlantic... More

This is such an elegant city. After travelling with Brittany Ferries we disembarked at Santander and spent some time on the sea front having coffee and generally enjoying the beautiful place. It was exciting seeing all the grand boats coming in and we explored the Cathedral which we found a little disappointing as it lacked beauty and grandeur. Travelling away... More

If you are returning on the Brittany Ferry it is well worth getting to the port several hours before departure. If you miss the ferry the next one is in 2 days time. You can check in from 09.30 and park on the dock for free. Your cabin ticket has a bar code on it which allows you to come... More

When in the north of Spain, visit the seaside locale of Santander (capital city of Cantabria). The coastline is a long expanse of soft sandy beach including some more gentle bay like areas for children and families. During the tide shifts there is the possibility for some great snorkling where mullet fish, schools of tiny neons, and bottom dwelling sealife... More

The city's food market is very impressive: huge variety of fish and seafood downstairs; meats, both fresh and processed and of various origins, as well as fruits, vegetables, condiments and the like upstairs.

This is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, sourounded by mountains, beautiful beaches and very clean. Totally different from the tourist resorts in Spain, here you can meet real Spanish people and eat authentic food. I found transport very efficient and cheap. There is so much to see! I love the cathedral, the elegany streets, shops and parks... More
