It is the 2nd most important city of Cantabria and the most populuated (behind only Santander, the capital). It's like my city and I love it very much but I'm not blind. Cantabria is beautiful and practically has no ugly corners, but if I had to say which one is the ugliest of all, I would definitely say Torrelavega. An old industrial city that was built around their factories, some semi abandoned, others not, even at full capacity. With different smells caused by factories. There is only little interest due to Santander having many shops, restaurants, cafes, bars ... And lots of nightlife on Saturdays.
