What to see in Santander
In the north of the region, around a large natural harbor, is the capital, Santander. It is one of the most important cities in the north of Spain and contains in its territory the essence of what to see Cantabria, if we look at its nature, landscapes, beaches, culture and gastronomy. Discover its small but charming historical center, where the cathedral, the lively porticoed square, the Menéndez Pelayo house-museum or the Pereda promenade, declared a historic-artistic complex, are located. Other places that you can not miss from the capital are the Municipal Museum of Fine Arts, the Palacio de la Magdalena, the Lighthouse of Cabo Mayor or El Sardinero.
