This 17th-century monastery contains what is reputed to be a splinter from Christ's cross.
We loved this stop outside of Potes. We all speak Spanish, so we were able to enjoy the tour in Spanish by the Padre. It was fascinating to learn a bit of history of the monastery and the relics.

The hermitage, which only opens for mass and for the annual celebrations, is a very simple building that was constructed in the 17th century to house the statue of Nuestra Señora del Mar (Our Lady of the Sea), Santander's much-loved patron saint.

Puerto Chico (Little Harbor) is the very core of Santander, from earlier times when it was the home of the city's fishing fleet. Pleasure craft moor here today and it offers splendid views of the bay and access to the Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria.

The Caprice is a palace designed by the amazing architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet and is considered to be one of the jewels of European Modernism. While exploring the interior, exterior and the gardens, you will discover a work of great colour, inspired in nature and full of symbolism.
This little architectural gem in the coastal town of Comillas, is well-maintained and easy to tour. We enjoyed walking through the house and the grounds, including the excellent explanatory materials.

This is a beautiful main square in Santillana del Mar. The town is just incredible, it is just like going back to the Middle Ages. It is surrounded by the Borja Tower, the town hall, and several picturesque houses. Everything is cobblestone, so I highly recommend to comfortable shoes.

This is a beautiful church built in the 12th century. It is a Romanesque style temple with three naves and a magnificent tower. It also hosts a cloister, but I could not see it. I went to the Collegiate for mass at 8.00 p.m. The priest was really nice and friendly.
