Hop off at the Paseo Pereda which echoes the character of the old city, having escaped the fire of 1941. The area has been declared a Historic Artist site and used to be home to commercial docks, warehouses and traders. Admire Santander’s rolling hills, towering cliffs and diverse beaches. Santander has now evolved into one of Spain's most popular resorts for the wealthy and noble Madrilenos (people from Madrid).

The museum was built as a tribute to the region and offers an insight into the world of fisheries, marine biology and life at sea. Or choose to discover the stars at the city Planetario and immerse yourself in a display of suns, moons, planets, galaxies and satellites, underneath the dome-shaped screen. Discover the the Palacio de Festivales (which is nearby) with its programme of plays, films and workshops and enjoy music, plays and dance at this magnificent venue.
