Come to this hotel and experience `Real Spain'." Belén, Saga Host Santoņa and its surrounds Located in Cantabria, on the northern coast of Spain, the Juan de la Cosa hotel is two kilometres from the small, idyllic fishing town of Santoņa. There's a regular local bus and guests are provided with free bus passes. In Santoņa, you will find shops, cafes and restaurants along a superb three-kilometre beach of fine white sand, the Playa de Berria. This spectacular beach and surrounding hillsides are popular with walkers, while the nearby marshes are rich in bird life, and the mountains offer plenty of options for outings. Learn more about Cantabria in our online guide: www.saga.co.uk/ cantabria-guide. Upcoming event: Fiestas de Santoņa in September This Christian festival involves everything from bullfights and maritime processions to regatta races and floats driving along the streets. Following Sunday mass, free portions of la gran marmitada, a dish of bonito fish and potatoes, often served with wine and bread, are given out on the streets. Interesting fact Rumoured to be born in Santoņa in the 15th Century, Juan de la Cosa was a navigator and cartographer, best known as the first European to produce a world map featuring the Americas.
