Casino, Hotel, Palace, Church, House - Santander has it all

I was in Santander with a friend during the grand re-inauguration of the beautiful and historic Gran Casino de Sardinero. I really like how they did the lighting.  The building can literally change colors. They had a live group playing music and they did an amazing light show on the facade of the building.  It ended with fireworks off the roof.  The casino is located just across from the beach.  Next to it is the new building of the old Hotel Sardinero.  It is also a lovely building.

Gran Casino de Sardinero - Santander, Spain
Hotel Sardinero - Santander
El Quijote - Santander
La Casuca - Santander
One of my favorite parts of Santander is all the old houses.  There are so many and they have a unique style that is just found in the north of Spain.  Here is one of my favorites, La Casuca.

Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón
My favorite church in Santander.  It is worth the visit.  The colores (to which the photo doesn't justice) are lovely, peaceful and divine.  Stop by to rest your feet after walking around town.
Palace of the Magdelena - Santander
Anyone visiting Santander should visit the palace.  Its location, views, architectonic style, presences, and history are all very interesting and pleasing.  Take the tour it is worth it.
