SANTILLANA DEL MAR

 

Santillana del Mar is one of the towns with the greatest historical-artistic value in Spain and the main focus of tourist attention in Cantabria, making it one of the most visited and attractive places in the region.

Known as " the town of the three lies " because it's not "flat",  is not a "a sacred or holy place" nor  it's "by the sea", Santillana del Mar is the capital of a municipality of 4,000 inhabitants dedicated mostly to agricultural activity and now mainly to tourism.

To speak of Santillana is also to speak of the Altamira cave.

Altamira cave,  often described as the Sistine chapel of cave art. This cave probably contains the most famous prehistoric paintings in the world. The "polychrome room" was not discovered yet to 1,879, during a visit in which Sanz de Sautuola was accompanied by his daughter Maria.

Population: 4,172 (2018)
