The City Sightseeing Santander train starts its journey at the entrance to the La Magdalena peninsula. From there, it travels along the peninsula, through pleasant countryside. The included Spanish audio guide describes places it passes through and the history of the Magdalena Palace, which is the train’s destination at the top of the hill.
The Palace was built in the early 19th century for the Spanish Royal family and funded by popular subscription. Its location on the stunning Magdalena peninsula couldn’t be better. The views over the beaches of El Sardinero, Mouro Island and the Cantabrian Sea are simply stunning. During high season, there’s a short guided tour of the outside of the palace and its surroundings, where you’ll be able to learn more about its fascinating story.
As the train returns every 15 to 20 minutes, you’ll be able to take your time enjoying the delights of the palace and the peninsula before heading back to the first stop. On the way down, the train passes three spectacular galleons of the Museo El Hombre Y La Mar and the mini-zoo.
