We went to visit it because my wife watched the Neflix series and would like to visit the set. Very nice place, well kept and interesting stories about it. The fee was ridiculous cheap. 3 euros. The only IF is that it does not carry...More

Gorgeous walk up to the palace in time for the last tour of the day. Guide only spoke Spanish and no audio translation available but for €3 still worth it.

Get there early as place gets packed and parking near beaches fill quickly. No tours in English/ French so passed on seeing palace. Takes about 45 minutes or longer if stops or picnic.

Even though we did not enter this building, just seeing it up close was a treat. We arrived to observe the bride and groom zooming away on their motorcyle! What fun!

Seen by train ride around the park. Recommend you to use the train if you need to rest your feet a bit. Didn’t go inside but sure it was nice

Unfortunately they did not offer any tours in English or French and would not let you tour without a tour and tours it seemed only happened on the hour. To bad looked like it would have been good to go through. Missed opportunity.

Magnificent palace situated in Santander within a park with many attractions. House only open on certain days.(Royal Residence). Lots for kids and adults alike. See sea lions/seals, ship replicas, open spaces, views over the sea, watch ferries arriving/departing, tea shop etc. Entrance free. Enjoy.

You can visit inside the palace if you want and it is really nice experience, and it has relaxing walk around with amazing views.
