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.

Besides the actual museum, which is interesting enough in itself, Altamira offers a reproduction of the real cave, which currently can only be visited by 5 people a week for preservation reasons. But the reproduction offers a very realistic experience because it is the same size as the real one, with a lot of added information. Visits to the cave are for a limited number of people even if it’s a reproduction, and the tickets are timed for that reason. If you skip the cue as some do, and enter the museum, you will only see the museum, and miss the opportunity to see the cave, which is the unique experience offered by this museum. At the busiest times of year there is a line at the ticket office, but one can also buy the ticket on line. Tickets sold on line, however, are for guided tours. If you do not speak Spanish, the best option is to download the official museum app, which is free and works exactly as an audiogiude (and using ear or head phones is also advisable, as one should be quiet in the cave).
