Santillana del Mar, one of the highlights of any visit to Cantabria, is a beautiful village of grand old mansions the highlight being the Colegiata de Santillana del Mar at the top of the town. A short walk from the town centre lie the caves of Altamira, the 'sistine chapel' of cave painting and there is a zoo with a particularly interesting butterfly house.
