The Pereda´s Promenade
If comfort is what you seek, leave the car in the parking lot (across from post office and the cathedral) and you're in the centre of Santander, in the "Paseo Pereda". Anyway, the ride is nice but if you are lucky to catch the sun rising, the view is fantastic. Go along the promenade towards the Palace Margadalena and Sardinero Beach. Enjoy sailing ships, an ice cream of the flavour of your choice, have a photo with the "wreckers" and research their existence. You also have the option of taking a ferry and sailing for an hour by the bay of Santander in order to see the city from another perspective.
