Santander Airport Guide

The most important tourist attraction in the city is the Magdalena Palace, former summer residence of the Spanish royal family. It’s a beautiful building with fabulous gardens and is stuffed with antiques and art. Santander also has a gorgeous beach which attracts many. On summer days it’s hot enough to sunbathe despite the sea being the cold Atlantic Ocean. The old town, despite being almost totally destroyed in 1941, still has some interesting buildings to visit and some of the ruins of the more important buildings destroyed by the fire.

There are 750 parking spaces at Santander Airport with 20 reserved for reduced mobility drivers. The parking is directly opposite the terminal building and if you need to park for more than five days your extra days have 50% off.

Santander Info

Santander is a busy port city in the northern Spanish region of Catalonia. It developed because of the calm waters of the Bay of Santander and was instrumental in making Castile wealthy. Previously it had been a Roman settlement with the invaders also recognising the benefits of building there. For many centuries the old town was a beautiful and fascinating aspect of the city but this was almost completely destroyed by an accidentally set fire in 1941.
