Santander travel tips

1) Visit Palacio Real de La Magdalena — former royal residence in Santander

This early 20th-century building at the top of the Magdalena Peninsula is one of the main tourist attractions of Santander. Around a century ago, it was the summer residence of King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia de Battenberg. The palace has not only a magnificent facade but also a beautiful interior with furniture from the 16th-18th centuries. The palace chapel will impress you with its 17th-century altars, the Saleta de la Reina, a private room of the queen.

2) See an impressive building of the Gran Casino Sardinero in Santander

The casino was opened more than 100 years ago, in 1916. The Modernist-style exterior of the building is combined with a richly decorated interior. The stained glass window and stairway are especially noteworthy. As for gambling, the casino offers slot machines and houses poker games. Even if you are a fan of neither, the architecture alone is worth a visit.

3) Even a small glass of wine may get you in trouble if you want to drive in Santander

In Spain, the maximum alcohol limit is 0.5 grams per litre of blood. For drivers with less than two years of experience, it is even lower — 0.3 grams per litre. The fine for violating those restrictions ranges from €301 to €600. That, as well as safety, seems to be a good reason to leave the car in a parking lot if you expect a few relaxing drinks in the evening.
