Santillana del Mar

Pretty and mediaeval.

About fifty kilometres from Santander, you come across a town of great beauty. Every little nook and cranny will get your attention as you walk through its cobbled streets. A little trivia: it is known as the town of the three lies, because it is neither holy ('santa') nor flat ('llana') nor at the sea ('mar'). At the end of the town, you will find the collegiate church of Santa Juliana, one of the greatest Romanesque monuments in Spain. A couple of kilometres away is the National Museum, which preserves the famous Altamira Cave. Right next to it, you can visit an exact replica of the cave and admire its Palaeolithic cave paintings. If you are travelling with children, don't miss the popular Santillana Zoo, with its lovely butterfly garden.
