The Cathedral of Santander is an austere building that was rebuilt and enlargened after the fire of 1941 but which has Medieval origins.
It is located in a small hill called Somorrostro where the Romans built their first settlement and rests of their constructions can still be seen through the glass floor of the Crypt. At the time, the Somorrostro Hill was almost entirely surrounded by the sea and it made an excellent strategic position that guarded the bay.
The cathedral consists actually of two superposed churches which keep important surprises.
