Cruises from Santander
The port city of Santander is the capital of the autonomous community of Cantabria, situated on the north coast of Spain between Asturias and the Basque Country. Today Santander remains a popular tourist destination renowned for its mild climate hence the urban beaches - some of which are great for surfing - are a real draw card. Indeed one of the city’s main attractions is the famous El Sardinero beach with its delightful promenade. Then there’s the Magdalena peninsula, on which la Magdalena Park and the royal palace are sited.
Also very popular with visitors is the trip along Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela and the neighbouring Altamira Caves, both of which have been declared World Heritage Sites.
