The Cabo Mayor Lighthouse

A balcony over the sea.

The 'Faro de Cabo Mayor' presides over the entrance to the Bay of Santander, in the extreme northeast of the city. Cabo Mayor is one of the best viewpoints on the coast. You will see the beaches and cliffs stretching all the way to Cabo Menor. The lighthouse was built in 1839 and was special for the development of commercial and maritime activity in the area. Today, the base of the lighthouse tower and the surrounding buildings are home to an interesting art centre. Discover the collection of almost a thousand drawings, watercolours and sketches of lighthouses by the Santander artist Eduardo Sanz. This artist is known precisely for being passionate about solar time and lighthouses.
