We're just back from a four day visit to the northern Spanish city of Santander. "We" being myself, Gwen and her brother & sister-in-law. We were interested in visiting the city after budget airline Ryanair starting flying here recently.
Only two hours from Edinburgh, Santander is a beautiful city in a wonderful seaside setting. Great architecture, spectacular beaches, a lovely city to walk about. Unlike most of Spain it's not hot & dry but has a fresh temperate climate. We enjoyed good food all washed down with excellent Rioja wine.

|Beach tennis is popular|
|There were a lot of contrails - the city is on the flight path between the UK and the resorts of southern Spain|
|This magnificent building is the Mayor's residence (I think)…..|
