Guided tour in Santander and its surroundings

By Gabriela Costa

Santander y alrededores

Santander, the capital city of Cantabria, is set on what is officially recognised as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. So, very near to the city we can enjoy incredible landscapes: Cabárceno Park, Pasiegos Valleys, Liérganes and Puente Viesgo villages, and the Castañeda church. We can also use a picturesque ferry in red, to cross the bay to Somo and Pedreña.

For golf lovers this village is regarded as a pilgrimage destination as it was where the legendary Seve Ballesteros was born and learnt to play at its Royal Golf Course created for the Spanish Royal Family of Alfonso XIII and his wife, Queen Victoria Eugenia of Battemberg.
