I was on the hop on and hop off tour of santander and was glad I chose to get off. 1 hour I spent walking the cliffs and seeing the lighthouse. Special place. Worth the visit.

Sunset is a good time to visit in summer. Also a great lookout for the Santander ferry and other ships. Easier to access now than in the 80's. Also has a good art gallery.

Great trip for a nice walk to a stunning location with fabulous views and an impressive, and free, art exhibition in the lighthouse itself. Well worth going.

Opposite the town hall there's a bus stop along a main road. Cross the main road so you're on the other side of the town square, then take any bus that goes to Sardinero. Most buses will stop close by there. When you're... More
