Relaxing place for a picnic

Great views here looking east and west. Relaxing park area and small zoo. Definitely worth the walk from the centre where you pass beautiful beaches.

This area of Santander is well worth the walk. The cliff top walk affords great views and takes about one and a half hours. The lighthouse visitor centre was closed for lunch when we walked by but looked worth a visit.

Nice area for strolling, although quite packed with people. Plenty of green area, as well as smaller beach. Palace also nice.

Easily to find and worth seeing. There is a train that you can take and that tells you the history of the palace. The only downside of it is that the history is only available in Spanish, therfore, the person I was travelling with, couldn't understand any word of it. There was an area with several animals that is also... More

The view all around is spectacular and it is a great walk from the city. The natural beauty is even improved in the morning or in the sunset. Keep a wind jacket at hand. Peacefull and well groomed location Good for solo walks or group recreation

This palace was built for the Spanish royal family when they came to visit Santander. The trees in the park surrounding the palace were brought from many corners of the world and were planted there because they pleased the King. There is a very small aquatic park at one end of the park where you can see sea otters and... More

I spent several afternoons here with my toddler son. We played on the playground, went to the playa de bikini, saw the penguins and pirate ships, and enjoyed the outdoors. There were plenty of people visiting the palace as well. The palace was at the end of the peninsula atop a steep hill. There was also a tourist team that... More
