We stayed on this plaza and really enjoyed looking at and listening to it (ha ha)! It's the center of town and clearly (or audibly) the hub of Laredo. Sitting on a bench during the day or peering from one of our Juliette balconies onto it, it was fascinating to see Laredo life in action. It provides you with a cross-section of its residents who...more
An inmense sand arrow that separates the Asón stuary (ría de Treto) from the ocean. Now it is an urban beach, as many appartment buildings have been built along the beach promenade, but it is so large, that it still keeps a certain wild appearance.La Salvé is one of the largest beaches in North Spain. It is so large and wide that even in the high...more
One of the most important Gothic churches in Cantabria. It has been continuously modified along the centuries with many renaissance and barroque additions. It stands on the highest point of the old town and made part of the defensive system, hence its fortress-like appearance.more

The area around the ría de Treto (Asón stuary) is famous for the quality of the anchovies in olive oil. This industry was first developped by Italian entrepreneurs and has reached the highest standards in Europe.

Favorite Dish: Anchovies are delicious with fresh cheese, with roasted red peppers or with lettuce cores. You can find them in almost every place around Cantabria.
Although Laredo does not have an airport or train station, buses between Santander and Bilbao (company turytrans) stop in the town center. For this reason, even if you do not have your own transportation, it is easy to arrive at Laredo.
The Municipal Market of Laredo is in a beautiful and ornate building. Not as large as other markets we saw throughout Spain but stocked with all the requisites.
Laredo acquired a historical significance in the middle ages as an important trade port in the North of Spain, being a prominent member of a liga that grouped the most important sea ports in the Northern coast. Most of the buildings in the puebla vieja date back to the XV and XVI centuries and display the coats of arms of the resident family in...more
