The city of Santander is quite famous in the world, primarily due to the eponymous bank, one of the largest in Europe. We stopped here for a walk in Magdalena Park.

There are also several beaches, one of which is called Bikini (Playa de los Bikinis). This name is not accidental; in the 1950s, foreign students in bikini swimsuits were first noticed here.

The most interesting object on the peninsula is the Royal Palace of La Magdalena. Built in 1909-1912, as the summer residence of King Alfonso XIII and his family.

On the promenade you can see several interesting ships. The most unusual of them is a wooden raft, on which a resident of the city of Alsar Vital set a world record in 1970, crossing the Pacific Ocean from Ecuador to Australia.
