Our day: Flight and private transfer (about 1 h 30 min) from Bilbao airport to Santillana del Mar. No cycling today. Today you will have the chance to explore the beautiful medieval town of Santillana.
About Santillana del Mar It has been 10 years since the last time La Vuelta rode through the cobblestone streets of Santillana del Mar. The Cantabrian locality hosted the 10th stage finish-line of La Vuelta 2006 but this will be its first time hosting a departure. Idyllic natural surroundings, impressive cliffs overlooking the sea and unique architecture have made this municipality a Historical-Artistic complex, an outstanding representative of Romanesque and Renaissance buildings.
