About Santander, Spain

Santander is a seaport, fishing center, and a popular resort. On the nearby peninsula of Magdalena is a former royal summer palace. An ancient port, Santander became, after the discovery of America, one of the busiest harbors of northern Spain. The 13th-century cathedral and the business district were destroyed by fire in 1941, but have been restored. There is an international summer university named for the writer Marcelino Menendez y Pelayo.

We took a trip out on this day so didn't see a lot of the port. The trip was good , as normally so added free time would have been nice.

Got on a hop on hop off bus. €25 adult, half price children, including a boat trip. Visited the palace, but was closed and only open at the weekend, not many points of interest.
