Cantabria is one of the autonomous communities that offers the best opportunities to enjoy nature because it has many towns and routes to live a few days of total disconnection in wonderful places . The possibilities of touring this autonomy are numerous, but here we make a proposal for all those who love nature. They are the sites not to be missed if you visit this autonomy.
Cantabria is an exceptional destination for all those who enjoy being in contact with nature and popular and traditional culture , thanks to the presence of numerous towns, some very small, where it is also possible to taste a rich gastronomy .
Among the natural environments that are well worth a visit, is Fontibre , which is well known for being the place where the Ebro river, one of the most important in Spain, is born, when it makes its appearance after the underground route through limestone waters from Mount Guariza .
From that area, it is possible to travel to the Cabuérniga valley , where Bárcena Mayor is located. This town is one of the most picturesque and striking in all of Cantabria due to its great beauty. And it is that it has managed to preserve all the mountain architecture, which has been declared a historical-artistic complex in 1979.
The route should also take us to Cabezón de la Sal , a municipality in which there is a magnificent redwood forest, as well as to San Vicente de la Barquera , which is the most popular fishing village in Cantabria.
Nearby is the Oyambre National Park , which is one of the best conserved areas on the coast of this autonomous region where it is common to see beaches with dunes, sandy marshes, estuaries and cliffs. It is a magnificent natural spectacle.
Finally, you should not miss Comillas , a town that has been declared a historic-artistic complex due to its great architectural beauty –the former coexists with other trends such as modernism with works by Gaudí or Doménch i Montaner- and landscape.
