  • In December we visited the magdalena peninsula for the second time, this time with our daughters and if you go with children to Santander is a place that certainly you can not miss. You will enjoy a magnificent views, beautiful Palace and of course, if you go with children of the animals that live there. A place with many gardens to stroll and enjoy of replicas of ancient vessels. Whether you go with children as if they do not give animals eat a few hours and is very well see them eating, especially as I say if you're going with the kids, my daughters love. A highly recommended visit

  • Re-fuel if you spend a few days in Santander. It is advisable to visit the Palace by inside in visit guided. You can see all the Palace except for a few rooms to the service of the Royal family.
