Combining its traditional past with a modern European edge, Santander is a glittering coastal city and long-time Spanish vacation destination.
The top highlight is without a doubt its beaches, namely the old world elegance of the Sardinero beach and its surroundings. Along with the beach, Santander is a city of contrasts. Leisurely seaside promenades contrast with the lively, twisting streets of the Old Quarter. Spanish families on vacation mingle with backpacking pilgrims on their way along a thousand year old religious pilgrimate to Santiago. Picturesque lighthouses are just a short walk away from Roman ruins. Majestic casinos and lush gardens rub elbows with historic Romanesque and Gothic buildings. Interesting one-of-a-kind museums create a cultural ambiance shared with restaurants, bars and inviting plazas.
All of this, sprawled out around a wide, glistening bay that looks out to the Cantabrian Sea, truly appeals to every one of Santander's visitors. Learn Spanish in Santander and discover it for yourself!
