Santander is the capital of Northern Spain’s La Montana Province, situated along the scenic Cantabrian Coast. The modern town you see today was built after a tornado and fire destroyed the original buildings in 1941. The centre of this charming town is marked by small buildings and squares with flowering gardens. It is pleasant to stroll along the avenues and shop at the boutiques or relax at a small café. The town’s fortress-like cathedral is a modern building, which retains its original 12th century crypt. Roman ruins were discovered beneath the church in 1983. Other highlights include the Fine Arts Museum, with works by Goya and other masters and the Altamira Caves, Paleolithic caves famous for primitive drawings on the interior walls dating to between 18,000 and 13,000 BC. You can see a replica of the painted caves and visit the Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology with exhibits of prehistoric cave dwellers. Not far from Santander is the Great Cape Lighthouse, offering a sweeping view of the bay and coastline, Santillana del Mar and Puente Viesgo caves. You can also visit Bilbao and the Guggenheim Museum.

At the north western tip of Spain, La Coruna is Galicia's largest city - from where in 1588 the Spanish Armada sailed to its fate. It's the port of call for nearby Santiago de Compostela, in whose ornate 11th century cathedral rests the body of St James. With Jerusalem and Rome, it remains one of Christendom's most holy places - to which in the middle ages up to two million pilgrims came each year.

Honfleur is a lively town and a bustling port, where fishermen can be seen hauling in the daily catch. The maritime influence is everywhere evident; even the handsome church of Sainte Catherine has an oak ceiling that resembles the hull of an overturned ship. The charming square surrounding the church gives way to narrow cobbled lanes of half-timbered houses, elegant manors, and tall, narrow town houses. The quality of light has long attracted artists, including a particularly illustrious group, among them Monet, Corot, Turner, Courbet, Millet, Seurat – all of whom stayed at a little thatched inn called the Saint Siméon, now Honfleur's most luxurious hotel.
