The climate of Santander (Spain)
Santander is a large city located in the northern part of Spain on the Gulf of Biscay. The city is located in the autonomous region of Cantabria of which it also is the capital. It is an old city which was already inhabited during Roman times. The old center of the city was almost completely destroyed by a huge fire in the 19th century. Among the attractions of the city are: the Santander Cathedral, the Palacio de la Magdalena and the lighthouse of Coba Mayor. The most popular beach of the city is El Sardinero. Santander has a moderate maritime climate strongly influenced by both the Gulf of Biscay and the Atlantic Ocean. Because of these influences temperatures during the summer are much lower than in the southern and eastern parts of Spain. Average precipitation figures are fairly high; about 1,200 millimeters. Most rain falls during the winter.
