Palacio de La Magdalena, Santander

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
A former seasonal residence of the Spanish royal family, Palacio de La Magdalena contains numerous fine paintings by Spanish painters and offers vistas out onto the sea from the top of the Magdalena Peninsula. The best way to see the 20th-century palace is on a tour. The reception rooms in particular impress, and note the the curiously designed student dormitories--which were originally stables--built in a medieval English style. Take a moment to greet the penguins and seals in the small marine enclosure near the entrance. Arrange to visit Palacio de La Magdalena and other attractions in Santander using our Santander family vacation planner.

  • This year I have input for the first time inside after 4 times that I have seen him out, I don't know since when allowed to enter inside but this year has been the first time that I found it open. For a price of € 3 entry from 10 years, have a guided tour of 45 minutes where they explain the history of the Palace, taking you to see the halls of the Palace and any room and are telling you all the anecdotes and details. Highly recommended visit.

  • Nice palace, unfortunately not much of the original rooms are left to be seen. The best conserved room can only be seen through the door. The visit is worth it, since it cost only 3eur
  • Beautiful from outside! The spot is really awesome
  • Amazing views of the Cantabrigian Ocean
  • Elegante
  • Historic and beautiful place
