2. Discover the hidden nativities

In December it’s typical for little churches orcouncil halls to display nativity scenes. Experience an authentic Christmas discovering the hidden nativities in each village. A great starting point is Santillana del Mar.

3. Get close to a fireplace in the bar of a little village in the mountains

December is the month in which Cantabrian villages, like Tudanca or Polaciones, are in the peak of its charm. With snow settling in its mountains the best plan is entering into the local bar, ask for a caldo or a warm coffee and make a place for yourself just near the flames.
