San­til­lana Del Mar

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

De­spite its big stark squares and over­bear­ing monastery, La Cole­giata, San­til­lana Del Mar is quite lovely.

There are no cars so it’s a pleas­ant stroll around the cob­bled streets lined with pretty and well-pre­served stone houses dat­ing from the 15th cen­tury.

In­side, the La Cole­giata is more at­trac­tive than out­side. It houses the tomb of the me­dieval mar­tyr, St Ju­liana af­ter whom the town is named. Shop here for hand­crafted leather and quaint bric-a-brac. San­til­lana-del-mar.com
