Magdalena Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places in Santander. It's not hard to find reasons to linger for hours and hours, visiting the beautiful palace at the top, swimming at the beaches, or enjoying the mini-zoo.
The mini-zoo is fully integrated into the landscape and the tanks are fed with real seawater, replicating the animals' natural environment as much as possible.
As you enter the peninsula, you turn left and discover this unique place where nature is on full display before your eyes. There are swans, penguins, seals, and even sea lions. If you’re patient, many of the animals do fun stunts and you can live some very touching moments.
From the peninsula, the views of the city and its coastline are great.
