Santillana del Mar is absolutely beautiful and shouldn't be missed if you are anywhere close during your stay or journey through northern Spain. Calle de Juan Infante and all the streets in the village are full of charm and history, some of the shops are full of tourist stuff but many have lovely things as well. We were so glad... More

Like in most of the northern villages, you will enjoy strolling around the old city. A lot of local shops are also available in the village.

We spent two weeks in Spain and one day was spent in Santillana. Probably our best shopping day was here on this street. There are quite a few shops along this street, though some may cater more to tourists. We bought shoes, chocolates, souvenirs and clothes, so lots of variety with very good prices for a touristy area. It is... More

What a wonderful and charming old town. We absolutely loved our visit. There are only a couple of stone-street, but so much to see and enjoy. The old buildings have balconies and they are full of flowers, mostly geraniums. Many stores where they sell local products and crafts.

This beautiful, small, medieval old village is a must see. While it is now a real tourist destination, and there is a predominance of souvenir and food outlets, the old village retains its “chocolate box” appeal with photo opportunities at every turn. The car free, cobble stoned streets and old houses and buildings and medieval church are a photographer’s delight.... More

Interesting buildings line the beautiful narrow cobble stone street of Calle de Juan Infante. A 15th-century tower, facing Calle de Juan Infante, is known for its pointed arched doorway. There are crafts, small artisan gallery, unique and interesting food, clothing, art and craft shops, restaurants, tapas bars. The street is simply picturesque and lively at night. We took a leisurely... More

I loved this little town! While it is not a real late night town it hops and pops in the daytime. There are many cute little stores and delicious restaurants. The Sider is fantastic and the selection of cheeses are quite numerous.

I am not a morning person, but if there was one think I wanted to do while in Santillana del Mar, was to wake up at sunrise and experience this little town waking up. It's one of the best momories I have. Sunlight in the morning gives this little part of town a special feel, as if time has not... More

Tourist this, tourist that...What are you? Why are you there? Yes, it is a touristic town, yes it has lots of shops catering to the tourists, but that's how the town supports itself! They live on that. Santillana del Mar's been voted the most beautiful village in Spain, and for good reason. It is a pretty little village, worth a... More

The Calle de Juan Infante is one of the main tourist streets in Santillana del Mar. It is filled with many stores where one can spend time entertaining himself by looking at the merchandise. The street is quite pretty and medieval looking.
