CANTABRIA

Cantabria is one of Spain’s most ancient and historical regions. It is located in the north of Spain and has been largely overlooked my mainstream tourism, making this the hidden jewel of Spain.

The landscape here is diverse and the weather unpredictable, but for those who enjoy rural tourism, cultural breaks and rugged natural coastlines then Cantabria won’t disappoint.

Some of the best mountain walks in Europe can be found here, along with great cuisine, cider houses, prehistoric caves – including the famous Altamira- spectacular beaches, los Picos de Europa (Peaks of Europe), and many other interesting attractions, which all go to make Cantabria one of the most exhilarating regions of Spain, indeed of Europe.

The region’s capital Santander combines historic beauty with a fashionable beachside resort.
