how to get to Hondarrabia from Santander

by jomills12

Hi
I'm arriving in Santander on Wednesday 4 August, and need to travel to Hondarrabia to meet a friend to sail back to Santander.
What would be the best way to get to Hondarrabia? Train, bus or hire car?
Thanks a lot
Jo

I think the bus will be suitable and there are several each day between Santander Bilbao Donostia-San Sebastian and the border with France at Irun.

Take a look at:

Some direct buses take less than 3 hours. Others maybe a bit more than 3 hours.

This is quite mountainous terrain and the coastal motorway is the way to go.

There is no railway connection between Santander and Irún, so if you do not want to drive, the only option is the bus to Irún or even San Sebastián, and take a cab or local bus there to Hondarribia. The company that runs the line between Santander and those cities in Gipuzkoa is Alsa. They have a website in English:

romerias

by chemolari

Romerias are an old tradition in Spain where every town has its own. Its basically a local party or fair with music
and some atractions. In principle Romerias have a religious connection where the town celebrates its patron or saint. Every town has its how saint.
I hate the kind of music they play but there is a big chance you will have fun if you like salsa and that kind of music. In summer there are a lot of them.

Cordiba de la Sal

by InterCity_Luton_Dave

took a train ride to cordiba de la sal.its a small salt mining village but we could not find any salt mines.never the less we had a few beers to refresh ourselves.

went to tourist infomation who were very helpful told us how to get a bus to Llanes... problem was it was full. so all in all it wasnt a worthwhile trip apart from this beautiful dog which we saw looking down from a window of a house. took a photo

Most Popular Pinchos

by DanielF about El Diluvio

Rather than tapas, Santander and the rest of Northern Spain prefer to have pinchos to accompany their midday appéritif. They tend to be more elaborate and the name refers to the stick that holds the food. The etiquete is similar in all the places and is based on a trust relationship: you take or ask for as many pinchos as you like from the trays displayed at the counter and you tell the waiter at the end how many they were, so it is important to keep track of all your consumptions.

There are many places scattered around the city to sample pinchos with a glass of beer or a vermouth, but one of the most popular for the quality and the large variety of the offer is El Diluvio, which is located in front of the Mercado del Este. It attracts a crowd of office workers from the nearby area and is usually cramped before lunch.

The food does not attain the level of sophistication and innovation of the most prestigious bars in Saint Sebastian or Bilbao, but it is quite satisfactory nonetheless.

El palacio de la - Magdalena - Palace

by elpariente

En 1908 se inició la construcción del palacio de la Magdalena , en la península de su mismo nombre .
Santander se la regaló al Rey de España para que pasara los veranos en Santander.
Actualmente la monarquía se lo vendió/cedió a la ciudad de Santander .
Ahora en el palacio está la sede de la Universidad de Verano Menendez Pelayo y en las caballerizas se alojan parte de los estudiantes
Se puede pasear por sus parque y desde allí ver las playas , los acantilados , sus animales...
In 1908 the construction of the palace of the Magdalena began, in the peninsula of its same name.
Santander gave it to the King of Spain so that it was his Summer Residence .
At the moment the monarchy was sold it/yielded to the city of Santander.
Now in the palace it is the seat of the Summer University Menendez Pelayo and in the stables part of the students lodges
You can walk by their park and thence to see the beaches, the cliffs, their animals…
