Santander Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Entirely rebuilt after being destroyed in a tornado in 1941, Santander is one of the most elegant seaside resorts on the Cantabrian coast and is also an important port. Built to the north of a wide bay, hemmed in by the narrow peninsula of La Magdalena and the Somo sand bank, the town is also famous for its international summer school and music and dance festival.
