Palacio de La Magdalena, Santander

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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

  • Elegante
  • Historic and beautiful place
