I recommend that you leave the city for a few days and disconnect on the mountain. I suggest the Pasiegan valleys, one of the most spectacular corners of Cantabria where nature opens its doors. You can delve into the Valley of Pas to look for footprints left by the inhabitants of the lower Paleolithic in the prehistoric caves of the Castle and the Pasiega in Puente Viesgo. If you are more interested in the rocks drop by the Valley of the Pisuena to admire its rocky formations reaching 30 metres in height, in the Pena Cabarga Natural Park. Follow the trail to delve into the Park of nature of Cabarceno and crashing with over a thousand species of animals from around the world, like the white rhinoceros or the African elephant and all only 20 kilometers from Santander! You can also feed your artistic vein in the Valley of the Miera. There choose between rock art from the Sopena cave or the works exposed in the Palace of f, Oteiza, Chillida and Solana currently Museum of contemporary art. To what you expect? Get your cottage in Cantabria and get the suitcases or better, the backpack.
