The Festival Palace is a bulky structure which stands out notoriously in the Santander's skyline. This colossal building was designed by the Navarran architect Sáinz de Oiza and is supposed to resemble a boat. Its massive façade, which faces the bay, combines green cupper plates with stripe of white and pink marble tiles.

The building was mainly conceived to host the shows of the Santander Summer Festival, which were previously held outdoors, at the Plaza Porticada.

Directions: In the Promontory of Saint Martin, between the Puerto Chico Area and the Madeleine Beaches. The entrance to the building is on Victoria Eugenia Avenue.
