Jardines & Paseo de Pereda information
The pretty, recently refurbished Jardines de Pereda are named after 19th-century Cantabrian writer José María de Pereda, whose seminal work, Escenas Montañesas, is sculpted here in bronze and stone.
The bayside promenade fronting these gardens continues east to the Puerto Chico (Little Port) marina. Half the city strolls or jogs here on summer (and, often, winter) evenings. Both Paseo de Pereda and Calle Castelar, opposite the Puerto Chico, are lined with grand buildings flaunting typical glassed-in balconies.
