I'm not sure what I should write here, it was just a part of the port with a couple of statues, very nice for having a walk in the evening.

Nice gentle walk by the harbour ,can see all the boats and keep your eyes peeled for some big fish! There is a cycle point where you can hire a bike for a small fee ad if you follow the harbour round it leads you straight past the maritimo museum to the beach. *Although the port is a sheer drop...

Great selection of good value bars and restaurants in this area and only a ten minute walk from Silken Coliseum Hotel. Try Restaurante Bodegas mazon, you won't be disappointed by the ambiance and value. Stay away from the house white wine, very poor taste and we sent it back. No problems however with doing this.

In this area there are lots of cafes and restaurants, a good place to "people-watch." Many residents of Santander come here on weekends.

Wonderful views of the city from a terrific, wide promenade (Paseo Maritimo) along the water. Buildings across the street are striking, as is the small, but interesting Palace of Embarcadero (the loading point for passenger ships). Continue west and you pass beautiful beaches, grand homes and a Riviera like, El Sardinero. A terrific walk!
