is a great choice for school trips where the students can have some Spanish lessons while visiting the local market in Santander
and find many breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, such as rivers, valleys, caverns, caves, cliffs and beaches.
It is located in between Asturias and the Basque Country and its capital city is Santander; known for its long, curving El Sardinero Beach, and Cabo Mayor lighthouse. Santander offers elegant promenades and avenues (Pereda, Castelar or Reina Victoria). This charm city has managed to combine tradition and modernity, where nature plays the lead role in any space.
The region of Cantabria has an underground paradise with 6,500 known caves; 60 of these caves are fascinating examples of Palaeolithic cave art and 10 of these remarkable caves have been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO such as El Soplao Cave with more than 20 km of tunnels. AMAZING!
A worth visit for your school group to put in practice their Spanish, see spectacular landscapes and visit the underground world!
