Museo Marítimo del Cantábrico information
Find out all about Cantabria’s long seafaring history at Santander’s maritime museum, 800m east of the Puerto Chico marina. The four floors cover all facets of the region’s relationship with the sea, and include an aquarium full of local denizens of the deep. With its fine ship models, the 1st-floor maritime history section is the most interesting. The 60-tonne whale skeleton is a star attraction.
