Cartes Market

Discovering the province.

As you will have gathered during your trip to Santander, it is essential to visit the surrounding areas and discover smaller villages in order to truly immerse yourself in the culture of this province. We highly recommend a Sunday trip to the village of Cartes, next to Torrelavega, as both of these villages play an important role in the industrial development of Cantabria. Every Sunday, this village hosts one of the province’s most traditional markets. Locals, professional salesmen and residents from all over the region fill the streets on a weekly basis, to buy and sell an unusual array of products. Whatever the case may be, this market has been held in this very same place for over twenty years, and is a great way to discover local customs.
