Spain has an enormous diversity in its coastal areas. On one of these coasts, there’s a medium sized city which has very important port facilities and a long history related to fishing.

Although there’s generally cold, humid and rainy weather, you can find many things to do, visit and enjoy in this city. It has very different neighbourhoods: new-built areas, unspoilt streets, old ones,… and some beautiful sandy beaches (but the water is quite cold, so you have to be very courageous!).

About the places of interest to tourists, there’s one that is the most popular place in this city: it’s a charming, big, stone old building built in a little peninsula, and originally it was built for royal family holidays. Nowadays, it’s a place where you can attend some summer courses organized by one Spanish international university. This peninsula also has a nice park to walk around.

In addition, if you love eating, you won’t be dissapointed by its delicious gastronomy, which offers a unique variety of seafood.

Finally, this city is nowadays a candidate to be the European Capital of Culture in 2016.

If you haven’t visited this city yet, I recommend it to you! You’ll like it!

    I was there some years ago and I really liked it, I hope to come back some time, maybe to assist to a Menendez Pelayo course in the Palacio de la Magadalena in Santander.
