  • A pleasant walk from downtown booty walking through the port can be found a few statues of some typical children here in Santander...

  • The Santander artist Jose Cobo Calderon is the creator of these wonderful statutes. They are in memory of the poor children who used to dive for coins tossed in the Santander harbour by rich tourists....  more »
  • very nice stop on the promenade of the port so that any villager can tell us the origin of those figures as fittings.

  • 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.
