The walk to the palace was very nice. The palace was nice, but seemed nicer on the pictures. But, if you are in Santander, you should still see it:)

The entire peninsula is a great place to spend some time and walk around. The grounds of the palace are full of wood carvings and it is fun to try and pick them out. The tour of the palace was very interesting. We were there early and I don't think they were expecting anyone but the three ladies pieced enough... More

This is a nice, relatively modern summer palace of the Royal family which is now owned by the city of Santander. Nice tour in Spanish and beautiful location and park. Some penguins in their mini marine enclosure. Great visit on a nice day.

This Palace was a present from the people of Santander to the King Alfonso XIII. Nowadays it belongs to the city and it is set in a peninsula with 2 beaches around it. At the top you can find the palace where is possible to visit, the entrance cost 3 € (If I remember well), and is nice...but not is... More

Definitely worth going up if only for the views. The palace is also beautiful and perfectly situated. If you do not want to walk up the hill, there is a train that leaves every 15 minutes

My friends had a wedding ceremony here. It's perfect place with super view on the hill and the building itself is classic with charm. Lovely memory!

You can enjoy the big park, wandering around, have a coffe or a plate of rabas at the polo cafè and bring you children to the playground or to say hola to penguins, seals and sea lions!

Wow, it is amazing. You have a big and steep way to get there, but it is worth it for sure. A remarkable view of the sea and the beaches from the top of the hill. It is really nice. Impossible to miss it when you are in Santander.
