Santander and Cantabria, a sweet green paradise and a natural oasis of the north of Spain. An enclave port surrounded by some of the most beautiful peninsular mountains, with extensive sandy beaches, where the sea and the land are connected by architecture and geological treasures. Santander is one of Spain’s most radiant cities, and together with its region Cantabria, is becoming one of the favourite tourist destinations for travellers avoiding Spain’s overwhelming heat, where all your senses will be fulfilled. Immerse yourself in tradition amongst the historical picturesque villages; try the delicious local specialities in seafood, meat and vegetables; and don’t forget to sample the local cider and orujo de Liébana. You’ll never want to leave.
Visitors to Cantabria can enjoy the unujusual, unique Christmas festivities it has to offer. Today we’d like to recommend two festivals that have been designated as being of National Tourist Interest and are certainly something you’ll never forget. Are you coming along?
The Association of the Most Beautiful Villages in Spain includes 79 towns across the country, five of which are in Cantabria: Liérganes, Santillana del Mar, Bárcena Mayor, Potes and Carmona. Let’s find out more about them!
