Cabezon de la Sal
The busy little market town of Cabezon de la Sal, at the gateway to the Saja Valley Nature Park yet just a short distance from Comillas on the coast, is well worth a visit to see the workings of a genuine Cantabrian community. Here you will find all the amenities but with a decidedly traditional touch. Visit on a market day or when they're celebrating fiestas (which seems to be the whole of August) and you're in for a real treat. Look out specially for the 'Dia de Cantabria' which usually falls in early August.
