Santander travel tips

1) Go to the Parque de Cabo Mayor to admire the beauty of the saviour Santander coastline

The park is a great place to walk along the picturesque cliffs overlooking the Bay of Biscay. Buy some gelato and savour the stroll, pausing to take some great pictures for your Instagram. At the end of your journey, you will see the Cabo Mayor Lighthouse, one of the most important lighthouses in the area. Built in 1839, it is over 30 metres high. If you want to find out more about it, there is a specialised museum inside.

2) Mind the siesta in Santander

Try not to plan anything between 14:00 and 17:00 in Santander, except eating and relaxing. You will surely find at least some shops open the whole day in a modern city. Still, your options will be limited, as locals tend to take a break and have a rest at that time. Take that into account and try to adjust to the Spanish schedule.

3) Relax at the Mataleñas Park — one of the most peaceful parks in Santander

This small park in the suburbs of Santander is a great place for relaxation. Shady trees, low hills, a little pond and stone structures covered with greenery create a peaceful atmosphere. The park offers a great view of nearby beaches and the sea. A great place for meditation!
