  • Very odd set up here. We were refused entry to the Library and re-directed to the Art Gallery next door! We walked to the rear of the building to find the casa-house museum and had to knock on the doo...  more »

  • The building is impressive since its façade looks from the street. Inside, it left us amazed. The attention of the staff of the library, impeccable. We were treated, chapeau! We learned a piece of history of Santander

  • Although they really are two different museums, are adjacent, and worth visiting them together for a little understanding this part of the history of Santander. The two buildings can be visited free of charge, in general the library is only open for tours until 11:30 (since then researchers use it) and although at first you visits are every half an hour, depending on the flow of the public may you arrive and enter directly. The visit, lasting about 15 minutes, consists of an explanatory video of the life of Menéndez Pelayo and subsequently entering the library itself, at any time can make any question to the library staff. As for the House-Museum, the visit also lasts approximately 15 minutes, in this case, rooms only can be seen from the outside and is not a guided tour if not that there are information panels in each room. In this case the opening times are broader, from 9:30 to 13:30 and Tuesday and Thursday opens in the afternoon. Anyway, it is better to make schedules in the tourist offices. Highly recommended free visit.

Where to stay in Santander

For views over the water and a wide selection of restaurants, consider staying near the Puerto Chico, or "little port," area. Lodging on the historical Camino de Santiago en Santander street puts you in the path of many of the city's walking tours. The streets that jut off Alameda de Oviedo are full of markets, cafes, and shops that put you in the middle of activity.
