What to see in Santander

Santander, situated on Spain's northern coast, is a picturesque coastal city known for its stunning bay, sandy beaches and historic charm. With elegant promenades, a royal palace and a lively culinary scene, Santander offers a delightful blend of natural beauty and cultural richness on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea.

One of Santander's most iconic landmarks, the Palacio de la Magdalena, is a must-visit attraction that combines historical grandeur with stunning natural surroundings. This majestic palace, perched on a scenic peninsula overlooking the Bay of Santander, was built in the early 20th century as a summer residence for the Spanish royal family. The palace itself is a splendid example of eclectic architecture, featuring a harmonious blend of Gothic, English and French styles. As you wander through its opulent halls and elegant rooms, you'll gain insight into the aristocratic lifestyle of the era.

The Santander Cathedral, officially known as the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, is a remarkable religious monument that stands as a testament to the city's rich history and architectural heritage. This Gothic-style cathedral, dating back to the 12th century, is a masterpiece of ecclesiastical architecture. One of the cathedral's distinguishing features is its elegant facade, adorned with intricate stone carvings and sculptures that depict biblical stories and religious symbolism. The central doorway, framed by a stunning rose window, serves as the main entrance to the cathedral and offers a captivating first impression.

No cruise to Santander would be complete without spending time on its picturesque beaches, and Sardinero Beach is perhaps the most famous of them all. Located in the elegant neighbourhood of El Sardinero, this sandy stretch of coastline is a beloved spot for both locals and tourists. Sardinero Beach boasts golden sands that invite sunbathers to bask in the Spanish sun and enjoy the refreshing waters of the Cantabrian Sea. The beach is divided into two main sections, Sardinero and Sardinero Primera Playa, both of which are equipped with facilities like showers, beach bars and lifeguard services.
