  • What to do in Santander? Yes, a short walk to the location of the funicular. It's free and takes 1 minute to get to bairro alto. It was worth this different and picturesque walk.

  • Comfortable funicular public (and free if they come I doubt) which is very suitable for up and down saving the great unevenness. Works well and it goes pretty fast, in addition it is not very crowded so it is worth climbing up to above to see the sights and take pictures

  • The funicular was closed for maintenance when I visited so had to take the steps up. There is just housing at the top and some great views across the city. The funicular is free but primarily for the residents of the area.
  • Good view naturally of the city and mountain backdrop. Fun free funicular too
  • Great view. At this upper viewpoint you are at about the same height as the spire of the cathedral in the distance.
  • Great views of Santander
  • bonico

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.
