Santander en coche de alquiler

The Cantabrian coast is full of charming places. In Cantabria, Santander is undoubtedly one of the most attractive destinations, for its beaches, its people and its history. What's more, the surrounding area has some perfect spots to explore by car. We fasten our seat belts and set off on a road trip around Santander.

We start by visiting the city to get to know its most iconic places. We make our first stop at the Palacio de la Magdalena, the most famous building in the city, which was built as a residence for the kings.

We leave the palace behind to go to the Sardinero, Santander's best-known leisure area. In addition to its beach, we can find entertainment venues, restaurants, parks... A whole enclave of places to spend the day with family or friends.

We get into the car and set off for Laredo. Located 46 kilometres from the city of Cantabria, Laredo is a charming little fishing village that welcomes hundreds of tourists every summer. In the centre, its medieval old town houses a multitude of monuments and the wide range of hotels and restaurants make it an ideal place to disconnect and relax.

If you are travelling with children, a visit to the Cabárceno Nature Park is a great idea. Located just 18 kilometres from Santander, this nature park is home to hundreds of animals of different species, living in a completely natural and open environment. Some animals are even in danger of extinction, and they are worked and cared for to maintain the species.

Children will have a great time strolling through the various meadows where tigers sleep, or the ponds where hippos bathe. If you want to escape the city for a few hours and reconnect with nature, Cabárceno is the perfect place.

We go even further inland in Cantabria to visit Liébana. Located 122 kilometres from Santander on the A-8 road, this mountainous region is a perfect destination for rural tourism. It is located very close to the Picos de Europa, so its scenic value is enormous. In the surrounding villages, there are also numerous monuments to visit, such as the monastery of Liébana or the Mozarabic church of Lebeña.
