Come to Spain. Come to Cantabria.
Cantabria is a Spanish province and autonomous community with Santander as its capital city.
It is bordered on the east by the Basque Autonomous Community (province of Biscay), on the south by Castile and León (provinces of León, Palencia and Burgos), on the west by the Principality of Asturias, and on the north by the Cantabrian Sea.
Cantabria is the richest region in the world in archaeological sites from the Upper Paleolithic period.
The first signs of human occupation date from Lower Paleolithic, although this period is not so well represented in the region.
The most significant cave painting site is the cave of Altamira, dated from about 16,000 to 9000 BC and declared, with other nine Cantabrian caves, World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
Spanish is the official language of Cantabria. The eastern part of Cantabria contributed to the language’s origins in a significant way.
Cantabrian language, or Mountain language, is hardly preserved in the West of Cantabria and some zones of the Pas Valley and the Valley of Soba, in its Eastern zone. This language has neither regulation nor official recognition.
Cantabria is part of Green Spain, (España Verde) named because of its lush pastures and mountainous forest covered landscape.
The area runs from Galicia in the east all the way along the northern coast of Spain to the French border in the west.
The coastal area is full of beaches, some relatively untouched, all with golden sands. Further inland Cantabria boasts two mountain ranges: the Cantabrian mountains to the south and the Picos de Europa to the west.
Despite its small size, there are seven natural areas of undoubtable interest in this autonomous community:
San Francisco De Asis, Urb Marina, San Fulgencio, 03177, Alicante, Spain.
