Santoña & Santander: Cantabrian Breeze
We will depart Bilbao early morning, direction Santoña to arrive at this little fishing village. There, we will visit a traditional canned anchovy’s company. We will learn about the manufacturing process of this high quality Cantabrian product while discovering the importance of the canning industry in the town and its evolution during the twentieth century.<br>Then, we will go to Santander, capital of the autonomous community of Cantabria, a cozy and quiet coastal city, with a wide bay facing south whose beauty has made it considered one of the most beautiful bays in the world. We will make a panoramic visit to the city and have free time to enjoy it.<br>Return to Bilbao and finish about 2:30pm.

This funicular is quite a new phenomenon for Santander. It has been transporting citizens for free since 2008. Working hours are very convenient: from 6 am to 12 PM. The cabin is large and can accommodate 20 people. Even the bike will fit if You want to climb up with the bike.

We went up and down on this and it was an amazing ride. There is nothing at the top but the views are amazing! We loved the street escalators going up to it as well!

well worth the uphill walk and trip on the funicular to see the wonderful views from the top, we visited on a lovely sunny but breezy day.

A free spin in a funicular, why not! This is a 5 minute walk directly across from the Botin building, there are some of the city`s wonderful escalators and moving walkways to get you to the base of the funicular and a peculiar mural of some malevolent looking squirrels also.
