Join us on a holiday to Santander

Lush mountain settings, picture-perfect white sandy beaches, and ancient architecture, Santander, Spain is a truly unique city.

Northern Spain tours differ from the rest of the country climate-wise, with temperatures in Santander a lot more variable than other parts of the country, but it retains its timeless beauty come rain or shine.

The best time to visit Santander is definitely in the spring and summer, when temperatures soar and the gorgeous plant life bursts into a vibrant rainbow, especially in the Jardines de Pereda. These botanical gardens are just outside the intriguing Centro Botin Arts Centre, designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano. The rest of the city centre is jam-packed with other attractions too, including the famous Cathedral de Santander. Venturing a little further out you’ll come to the iconic Palacio de la Magdalena, a royal summer residence that overlooks the sea. With Newmarket Holidays, you’ll be whisked through all these highlights, with plenty of opportunities to linger in places you feel most attracted to.

While the city is undoubtedly a mecca for history lovers, it has a thriving contemporary culture that’s as rich and complex as any well-curated exhibition. The city’s university is named after its most famous son, the historian and critic Menendez Pelayo. It isn’t the only place you can learn about his legacy in the city, with plenty of smaller museums dedicated to or including exhibitions about his life and works. There’s also a plethora of other attractions to explore, from galleries to dance shows. Santander holidays truly are a perfect fit for all kinds of traveller.
