There is always that one place that everyone says you shouldn’t miss when travelling to a country. In northern Spain, that happens to be Santander. Most regions in the north are unspoilt by large tourist crowds and are less popular so you should definitely take your campervan and drive here while it is still fresh and wonderfully clean. The city is located in the northern coast and is city is composed of one beach after the other where the bays meet the urbanism. The two most famous beaches here are the El sardinero and the La Peninsula de la Magdalena.
Tourism in the city is mostly supplied by traffic from nearby cities and regions like Castilla y Leon, Asturias and the Basque Country. There are, of course, also international tourists though they usually come from Europe as well.
In the city proper, there are beautiful and inspired architectural wonders for places, monuments, churches and museums. There is the Santander Cathedral, the Iglesia de Santa Lucia, the Seminario de Monte Corban among other religious landmarks. You can also drive your campervan to the many museums in Santander like the Regional Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology of Cantabria, the Museum of Fine Arts of Santander and more.
The city is also full of beautiful parks, streets and squares that rival those of the greater European cities. Among the streets is the promenade overlooking the bay called the Paseo de Pereda, the Reina Victoria Avenue, the Paseo del General Davilla among other streets. Some parks include the Park of la Magdalena and Doctor Morales Park. With your campervan hire, drive to other destinations in Spain like Pamplona, Cadiz or Valencia.
