Visited here with my partner for a conference. We took tons of photos here and busked in the beauty of this peninsula. Spend at least 2 hours here to absorb the atmosphere. The nicely manicured gardens and a few exhibitions make it interesting. The view from the peninsula is just amazing!

This peninsula has much to offer: the palace, the beach, walks and outdoor eating. For children there are animals to see and viewings of sealions being fed everyday. Replica ships are on display with their stories of the age of exploration. Well worth a visit.

Went to give dog a run. He loves beaches but can't stay out of the water. Grey day, not many visitor, but impressive. Slabs of rock, smashing waves and bags of room to run a dog. And no signs saying you can't.

I've walked this peninsula on many occasions and never tire of the views and the scenery. It can be easily reached via a stroll from the city centre in around 30 minutes, which includes walking along one of of the beautiful beaches in Santander. This has a wooden pathway all along the rear to make it all the better for... More

A nice place to walk and enjoy the scenery. The views of the islands of Santa Marina and Mouro can be quite impressive, especially during the winter gale storms. There is an area where they keep the 3 galleons that Vital Alsar utilized in 1978 to recreate Orellana's expedition.

Area is great, palace is not my thing, found it boring and uninspiring. Sad to see a small aquarium with depressed seals that should be 10 metres away in the sea, free.

Peaceful walk around the peninsula on the very well maintained grounds of the stately castle. Beautiful view of the ocean.

You do feel somehow that you're transported to another era! Large grounds with forest, green areas, many places to overlook the sea... There is an area with seals and penguins which are well kept although it isn't a proper zoo. At certain times you can see them being fed. There are also some replicas of boats and a life raft....
