CANTABRIA

Overview

Cantabria on the Iberian Peninsula – a Spanish historical region with Santander as its capital – is a tourist favourite and ideal for language groups. The genuine Spanish culture and traditional heart-warming atmosphere will ensure students embrace the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Spanish.

The spectacular natural landscapes of this region (known as “Green Spain”) along with its prehistoric caves and multitude of white sandy beaches, makes it an appealing destination for groups with an interest in geography. The amazing Altamira caves are designated as World Heritage and referred to as the “Sistine Chapel of Prehistoric Art”. In addition to a wonderful architectural heritage, beautiful nature reserves and superb cuisine, a trip to the Picos de Europa National Park is recommended when visiting Cantabria.
