SANTANDER & SPAIN'S MOST CHARMING VILLAGE
The first part of our tour will take us to Santillana del Mar, situated 25 miles from Santander. Strangely enough, it is not "del Mar" but several miles inland. It must be one of the most interesting villages in Spain from an architectural and historical point of view. It's one of the most beautifully preserved and easy to walk and admire. The fortified house of Borja, the House of the Eagle, Merinos Tower and the College-church with its cloister, all this make Santillana one of the most charming villages in the whole country. If you know of a more charming one, we would love to hear about it ! Once the walking tour has finished, we will have some drinks and snacks at the village's Parador (state historic hotel). Returning to Santander we will enjoy a panoramic tour of this beautiful town, passing the Gothic Cathedral, Magdalena Palace, Beach of el Sardinero and the magnificent building of the Bank of Santander. The city owes its existence to the excellent harbour of the Bay of Santander. Santander was an important port for Castile in the later Middle Ages, and also for trade with the New World. It officially became a city in 1755.
