Spain's Most Elegant City

Known for its prime north coast location and elegant city center, Santander remains the central destination for tourism and commerce in the whole Cantabrian region. While largely metropolitan, with a growing young population and trendy neighborhoods, the city boasts a large number of green areas and historical sites that contribute to its overall charm. A park anchors the city’s north peninsula, while urban beaches and expansive port border the city center. Customize your holiday with our Spain trip generator to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay

For views over the water and a wide selection of restaurants, consider staying near the Puerto Chico, or "little port," area. Lodging on the historical Camino de Santiago en Santander street puts you in the path of many of the city's walking tours. The streets that jut off Alameda de Oviedo are full of markets, cafes, and shops that put you in the middle of activity.
