RE: Going to Bilbao, but landing in Santander

by chemolari

Although a bit late, this may be helpfull to somebody else.

The best way is to take a bus. Go to Santander's bus station (is next to
the train station). There are buses to Bilbao almost every hour and it cost only
about 5 euros. The trip takes about 1hr and a half.

Travel Tips for Santander

The Legend of the Saint Martyrs

by DanielF

There is a beautiful rock in the middle of the bay, near the Madeleine beaches, which forms a natural arch and has a small lighthouse on it. It is called Isla Horadada (Island of the Hole). As the legend goes, this hole was shapened when the heads of the two Saint Martyrs, Saint Emeter and Saint Celedon crashed against the rock.

These two martyrs from the period when Spain was a province of the Roman Empire had been decapitated in Calahorra for their refusal to abjure Christianism. Their heads were thrown to the river Ebro, which carried them to the Mediterranean. After circumnavigating the entire Iberian peninsula, they finally landed in Santander, where their relics are still venerated in the cathedral. They are the Patron Saints of the city and their festivity is celebrated on 31 August.

Sailing

by andal13

You can cross the bay from Santander to the towns of Pedreña and Somo, in a ferry. It is not a tourist trip; local people who live in these towns use it to go to their work in Santander.

Se puede cruzar la bahía desde Santander hasta los pueblos de Pedreña y Somo en un ferry. No es un paseo turístico; los lugareños que habitan en estos pueblos lo utilizan para ir a sus trabajos en Santander.

Fish, fish, fish, fish!

by chemolari

Santander is s seap[ort. That means toons of fresh fish.
Try always fish on season. My favourite is white tuna (bonito). The season starts in august and last until october.
The best ways to try it is grilled (bonito a la plancha) or in tomato sauce (bonito con tomate) .
One local dish is a pate made out of cabracho fish and shrimps. Cabracho is the ugliest fish you can imagine but is very tasty. The pate is called "pudding the cabracho" and is served as a racion (large tapa). This is a must !

Plaza de Velarde

by Redang

Also known as Plaza Porticada, it used to house summer festivals and concerts since 1.952 until the Palacio de Festivales was built.

On one side of the square, facing Avenida de Calvo Sotelo, the monument dedicated to Pedro Velarde (fourth and fifth pics), Spanish hero who died in 1.808 during the the Spanish Independence War.

El Carmen Por mar / By sea

by elpariente

El 16 de Julio se celebra la Virgen del Carmen que es la patrona de los Pescadores y de los marinos , al gente de "la Mar".
Por la mañana se hace una procesión por mar , después de la misa en el Barrio Pesquero .
Puedes subirte en los barcos de pesca , que ese día se engalanan y que te llevarán a acompañar a la Virgen , que va primero a la Comandancia de Marina donde le hacen los honores cantándole "La Salve Marinera" y después sale cruzando toda la bahía hasta la isla de Mouro donde lanzan ramos de flores y rezan una oración por los pescadores y marinos muertos
A los barcos de pesca se les unen los barcos de recreo y es un paseo espectacular pue se ve Santander desde una perspectiva diferente

In the morning they make a procession by sea, after the mass in the Barrio Pesquero.
You can get in the fishing boats , that this day they are ornated to take you to accompany the Virgin (Madonna), which goes first to the Naval Command, where they do the honors singing "La Salve Marinera" and then it goes across the bay to Mouro Island where they throw bouquets of flowers and pray a prayer for the dead fishermen and marines
The fishing boats are joined by the other boats and it is a spectacular ride that alouds you to see a different perspective of Santander
