What's Santander Like?
As the ferry terminal for connections across the Bay of Biscay, Santander is the first port of call for many visitors. First impressions are of a bustling modern place, with much of the city rebuilt after a huge fire in 1941. Most visitors head to the east of the city to the graceful Magdalena quarter, overlooked by the 19th century Palacio De La Magdalena with its elegant park and small zoo. The cliff-shaded Playa de la Magdalena has a windsurfing school in summer, while the Playa El Sardinero is the beach where everybody in Santander meets up at weekends for a stroll, a little bronzing and lunch. Santander has a lively cultural scene and an impressive modern art museum on calle de Rubio. The prehistory and archaeological museum on calle de Bailen showcases some of the significant finds made along the Cantabrian coast. Santander provides pleasant average temperatures all year round, and provides a slightly cooler climate than hotter southern Spanish resorts.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Santander
Spanish beach culture isn't all about soaking up the rays. Imitate the locals by investing in a couple of wooden bats and a rubber ball and playing endless games of beach tennis where the aim is to keep the ball airborne as long as possible.
