Then climb into what will be your mode of transportation for this holiday and drive to your first hotel accommodation in Santander, the beautiful capital of Cantabria. Santander is, without a doubt, one of the most elegant and beautiful cities on the northern coast of Spain. Both the sea and the mountains are continually present in this city, captivating you with its aristocratic atmosphere, 19th-century buildings, charming outdoor terraces and spectacular bay – considered one of the most beautiful bays in the world! There are several beaches and harbours on the northern side of the city and a charming old quarter. In the 19th century, the city used to be a renowned tourist resort for Spanish politicians, aristocrats and other members of the upper class.

Start with Santillana del Mar, an exquisitely charming cobblestoned town. Continue then to Comillas, officially designated a historical-artistic site. Its alleys and squares are filled with ancestral houses and some modernist buildings, such as the stunning ‘El Capricho’, designed by Antoni Gaudi. Afterwards, visit San Vicente de la Barquera, an old fishermen´s refuge. It offers some stunning views, its backdrop being the mountains of the Picos de Europa. The village of Llanes is our next recommendation. In former times, it was considered one of the most important fishing port of the area.
