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.

  • The statues are amusing and I am quite impressed that are there since 19 th century
  • One of the most famous Statues of Santander.
  • Really interesting sculpture that depicts a very local figure: los raqueros kids that would dive into the pier to catch the coins thrown by tourists of old times. Beatifully crafted and very well placed by the pier. I suggest a nice walk to enjoy the renovated seawalk until in order to enjoy small landmarks like this one or grua de piedra
  • Visit a must if you come to Santander.
