Collegiate Church of Santillana del Mar, Santillana del Mar
(4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The largest Romanesque structure on the Cantabrian coast, Collegiate Church of Santillana del Mar has allegorical columns with carvings that depict the epic struggle between good and evil. The cloister's humble size is offset by these detailed works, which are chiseled on the top of columns in the form of animals and humans. Surrounding the cloister is a town with cobblestone streets; its cafes and shops serve the many guests of the sacred monastery grounds. Outside the walls, stumble across several sarcophagi that are the final resting places of priests and nobility. Put Collegiate Church of Santillana del Mar on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Santillana del Mar vacation trip planner.

  • Nice site on in village of tale, a quiet place and must-see if you were to Santillana. The really only thing that bothers me when I go to a religious site is that they charge me to pass, but in this case, is the amount and worth

  • It seems excessive to me the price to see it taking into account the amount of cloisters that abound in Spain that do not charge entry, 3 euro, seems little but the visit nor is anything otherworldly. Also the place is very nice and recommended for tourists in the city.

  • It is worth paying the 3 euros entry to see it in all its splendor, very reconendable.

  • Collegiate Church of Santa juliana, probably one of the best examples of Romanesque art in Cantabria. The current building dates back to the 12th century, but this made additions and reforms of the primitive chapel that is believed dates back to the year 870. Data apart is the ultimate goal of a stroll in Santillana del mar and enjoys much sit awhile in its surroundings.
