Parador de Santillana Gil Blas

Santillana del Mar is one of the most historically and artistically rich towns in Spain. Everything in it is a monument, including the Parador de Santillana Gil Blas, which takes its name from the famous literary figure born in this town. If you stay here you’ll feel like you’re experiencing history. It’s in what used to be the Barreda-Bracho family house, a late 17th century Baroque building, which is faithful to the style of the manor houses in the town, with a gabled roof and the family coat of arms on the façade. Its wooden interior offers cosy, elegant rooms, and quiet places to spend special evenings enjoying the excellent cuisine of the Parador.

Parador de Santillana Gil Blas

The Parador Santillana Gil Blas is in the historic town centre, making it easy to get around on foot.


 That’s how to see the Casa del Águila and the Casa de la Plaza, as well as the old Town Hall building.


Just 2 kilometres from the village is the zoo, and just over 15 kilometres away is beautiful village of Comillas, which is protected by the Cantabrian Sea.


 

If Santillana del Mar is famous for anything, it’s for the prehistoric paintings in the Altamira Caves.


 Considered the ”Sistine Chapel” of cave art, visits are currently restricted to prevent them from deteriorating.


 An exact replica of the paintings can be seen at the Altamira National Museum and Research Centre at Santillana del Mar.
