A historical journey through this Spanish Sea

This venue offers a profound look at different areas of the underwater and maritime world.

The Cantabrian Maritime Museum is in Santander Bay. It is an attractive, modern building, and was born as a tribute to this northern Spanish region and its sea. Over 3,000 square metres, it aims to show the relationship between man and the maritime world throughout history.

This museum is divided into four main sections: Life at sea, dedicated to marine biology; Fishermen and fisheries, centring on fishing ethnography; The Cantabrian region and the sea in history; The technological avant-garde
