Welcome to Santander
Santander is a coastal city and capital of the historic Cantabria region of Spain. It has been a port city since the 11th century and it is still very active with a regular ferry service operating to the United Kingdom.
The historical district of the city was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1941, and what is left is far from original or quaint, although you still can find a few charming old houses in Puertochico. The town makes up for this lack of architectural character with a plethora of bars and restaurants with fish and seafood dominating the local cuisine.
Santander has a good range of things to do and see from the most popular beach, El Sardinero to Cabárceno Natural Park,
