A lil further from the city center, but worth a visit. Especially who likes hiking or loves nature. The area around the lighthouse was closed, but there are benches to sit, a bar for a drink and a snack. So you can make yourself sweet...More

We took a wander up at sunset to catch some photos of the lighthouse against the sunset - it did not disappoint. However on the way back we took a route away from the road. Fortunately there was still some light as it would have...More

The lighthouse is of an impressive size, and it is almost 2 centuries old. In front of it one can see a monument dedicated to the ones who were thrown through the cliffs (and died) during the Spanish Civil War. Below, there is a huge...More

Guess we are not the only travelers that have a soft spot for lighthouses, since there are always lots of people near any such building everywhere we went. In Santander the lighthouse is not far away from the sandy beaches and can be reached on...More

It's a great place in Santander. There is a wonderful short walk from the lighthouse to the very end of the cape. From that point you are surrounded by an exceptional view. It's pure beauty. You have to do nothing more than sit down a...More

This is a great place to get some fresh air and enjoy strolling about. We didn't go up into the lighthouse, which I bet offered some dramatic bird's eye views of the coastline. Nonetheless, do not miss walking out to the tip and looking back...More

If you visit Santander for a few days, you must go to the Lighthouse Park. It's a beautiful place over the rocks in the north of the city. Public bus works daily each 20 minutes from the centre of the city. You can take great...More

We decided to stretch our legs as the weather was overcast. On reading Tripadvisor reviews we were going to take the bus. This bus only runs in the summer every 45 minutes. Being impatient we got a taxi, which only cost €6 to the car...More

Sunset is a good time to visit in summer. Also a great lookout for the Santander ferry and other ships. Easier to access now than in the 80's. Also has a good art gallery.
