All the secrets of Potes
In Potes you can enjoy traditional food full of local charm, sandwiches of all kinds, grills, churros, cafés and even whisky houses. Its Gothic buildings will take you back to the Middle Ages and the mountain routes will let you admire the most beautiful, verdant nature of its surroundings.
It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful towns in Cantabria. Its geographical characteristics and the limited public transport connections mean the best and almost only option to enjoy a holiday in Potes is to get there by car from Santander. Santander, on the other hand, can be reached easily by plane or train.
As for accommodation, you'll find a long list of hostels and guesthouses at more than reasonable prices, where you can savour a delicious Cantabrian meal. Of course, you can also enjoy it in any of the local restaurants or bars you find during your visit.
This idyllic Spanish town offers buildings of great beauty that are sure to captivate you. One of the highlights is the Torre del Infantado, the most emblematic building of the town, which years ago was the house of the Marquis de Santillana.
