Summary of The Day: Explore Santander from the comfort of the top deck of an open top bus.
Rolling hills, towering cliffs, beaches, and more. Santander evolved into one of Spain's most popular resorts for wealthy and noble Madrilenos. Damaged by a fire in 1941, parts of the City have been re-built, retaining their original architectural style. The reconstructed area houses Santander's most popular Gothic Cathedral. Take a city sightseeing bus tour of the city and hop off at conveniently located stops along the route to make the most of your experience. Hop off at the Paseo Pereda which echoes the character of the old city having escaped the fire of 1941. The area has been declared a Historic Artist site and was once home to commercial docks, warehouses and traders.
Hop off at the Museo Maritimo and experience a historical journey through the Spanish Sea where you can take a profound look at different areas of the underwater and maritime world. The museum was built as a tribute to the region and its waters; it offers insight into the world of fisheries, marine biology and life at sea. Discover the stars at the city planetario. Immerse yourself in a display of suns, moons, planets, galaxies and satellites underneath the dome-shaped screen. Nearby is the Palacio de Festivales with its comprehensive programme of plays, films and workshops. Hop off at The Palacio de la Magdalena, a beautiful early 20th century palace which sits on the shoreline. The palace was originally built as the summer residence of the Spanish Royal Family. The grounds of this magnificent building offer picturesque walks, a museum, beach, playground and a small zoo.
Hop off and visit the Parque de Matalenas, surrounded by cliffs between Mataleñas beach and the beaches of El Sardinero. Enjoy fabulous views of the city, a round on the golf course or time by the lake. Try your luck at Black Jack or Poker at the Gran Casino, which was one of the first buildings to be constructed near Santander's beaches in El Sardinero. To experience the city’s vibrant nightlife, head down to the Cañadío area (downtown) where tourists and locals alike traverse from bar to bar until the early hours.
