More about Santander

Santander is one of the most popular cities in Spain, with a population of just below 200,000. It's also the largest city and capital of Cantabria province. There is a main ferry port to the north of the city which acts as a gateway to Northern Spain, being close to Bilbao and Oviedo.

Santander is particularly noted for its coastal geography – a small peninsular surrounded by cliffs against the backdrop of the Cantabrian mountains. It's very much a coastal tourist city with a multitude of sandy beaches and holiday apartment blocks.

There is plenty to see and do in Santander apart from attempting to catch a tan. There are several museums dedicated to both history and the arts, as well as a number of ancient churches including the Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Santander, which was built between the 1100s and the 1300s. Note that much of Santander was damaged in a huge fire that swept through the city in 1941 and burned for two days.

Santander is renowned for its seafood, with fried calamari, seabass and sardines all being noted examples of Santander cuisine, as well as Cocido Montañés, which is a hearty bean stew into which bacon, pork ribs, black pudding and chorizo is added.
