It is surprising that in such a small town as Santander, you will find one of the finest, most comprehensive museums. The Cantabria Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, located at 6, Rubio Street, shows this city’s worth. King Alfonso XIII, who had a special connection with the seaside town of Santander, laid the first brick of this museum in 1918. Inaugurated in 1923, the museum gave this city a place to painting and sculptures by both international and regional artists. The most noteworthy of the latter are Maria Blanchard and Pancho Cossio. Perhaps one of the most important pieces is the portrait of Fernando VII, painted by Francisco de Goya in 1814.
