Cantabria, Spain

Though I’m in Japan, I still haven’t managed to show you the beautiful places I visited in the North of Spain, Cantabria to be more specific. It is a fascinating place with cliffs and victorian style architecture, reminded me of England, very different from the South Coast.

Decided it would be useful to give a few destinations for you, guys. So if you ever visit Cantabria, here are some places you just can’t miss.

To see:

  • Santillana del Mar– a medieval village full of souvenir shops. The best place to eat is La Huerta Del Indiano. The restaurant is hidden in a beautiful garden at the back of a small house. For lunch they have a 13-15 Euro Menu (wine+ starter+ main course+ dessert+ coffee).
  • Altamira Cave– If you share my love for history, or are interested to see how people’s “houses” looked like in the Paleolithic Era ( 18 000- 14 000 B.C.), this is the place to see! Unfortunately photos weren’t allowed, so you’ll have to google it to see some.
  • Santander, Palacio de la Magdalena– Santander is the capital of Cantabria and one of the most developed cities in Spain, though with a population of only 100 000 people. The Palace of Magdalena is a fascinating place (we did a shooting there, so i’ll make a separate post with it) inspired by the English and French style.
  • Suances– once a Roman settlement, now it is a very beautiful costal village.
  • Cabarceno Natural Park– especially if you’re traveling with children, this is the best place to spend a family day. Elephants, wolves, tigers, zebras and many other animals.  Avoid weekends!! I had the feeling the the whole Cantabria visits it on Saturdays, Sundays.
