Leisure and shopping in the outskirts

Interesting outskirts

The fact that sea and mountains surround Santander has meant that it is limited in terms of its growth, which has allowed the surrounding villages to see enormous growth in the last decades. This is also why the very large retail areas were built in the city’s outskirts. Only 5 minutes from the city (on road a-67), you will find the Valle Real and Corte Ingles shopping centres, which both offer an array of services, including clothing, food, leisure and accessories. This is also where you will find the city’s cinemas, as well as some restaurants and all kinds of other services. Ifyou are not travelling by car, you can also take a bus or a train from the station, as they run very frequently. If you haven’t had enough retail therapy, head to Peñacastillo for a third enormous shopping complex.
