  • The visit to the Magdalena Peninsula is a must if you're in Santander. It is a unique space surrounded by the Bay of Biscay and great scenic beauty. You can enjoy beaches as well as a mini zoo and the 'Museum' the man and the sea. Also on the grounds is the Palacio de la Magdalena.

  • Views excellent, Palace and beautiful surroundings. Relaxing walk. Formerly knew very well where build palaces. I was surprised the "symbolic price" with which the Crown it ceded to the city of Santander, 140,000 million of the old pesetas. We have to take into account that in his day it was given them by the people of Santander?.
