Cantabria is a historical region on the north coast of Spain, hardly touched by the mass tourism of the Mediterranean resort towns.
With Santander as its capital city, Cantabria is home to some of Europe’s most spectacular wildlife. From the isolated coves along the coast to the spectacular Picos de Europa, Cantabria is popular with lovers of nature and the great outdoors.
The region is bordered on the south by Castile and León and on the north by the Cantabrian Sea, the Bay of Biscay.
A combination of mountain peaks, picturesque villages and stunning architecture are among the attractions in Cantabria. Whether you want to visit the snow-capped mountains of the Picos de Europa or soak up the sun in Castro, Laredo or Comillas, Asturias offers a diverse range of things to see and do.
Santander is both a major port and an elegant resort. The beach district of El Sardinero is one of the most popular places to catch some rays in summer time.
