Santander y Santona, Cantabria.

Santander offers a city atmosphere combined with the very essence of Cantabria: beaches, countryside, nature, gastronomy and culture. The city is built around a natural port, which has been used since before the occupation of the Roman Empire. The surrounding countryside is stunning, with wide open verdant areas and beaches.
Santoña is a municipality with a strong maritime tradition. Its history and people have always been linked to the sea and to famous mariners. The most well-known is undoubtedly Juan de la Cosa, a cartographer who was instrumental in the discovery of America and a great expert in marine matters, as he demonstrated in his sea chart, a fundamental document for studying cartography at that time. Santoña is also considered to be the place where the caravel, the Santa María, was built.
