Festival Palace

Santander's green giant.

You will recognise it easily: this building rises up like a green giant at the end of the seafront promenade, beyond Puertochico. It is the work of the architect Saénz de Oiza, the creator of several of Spain's most controversial and innovative buildings. Inaugurated in 1990, the Festival Palace made an impression on Santander residents. Today it is a reference point for culture in the city. It is home to the prestigious Santander International Festival, which attracts audiences from all over the world. In addition, it has extensive theatre, film and music listings all year round.
