Claims to be “one of the most picturesque villages in Spain.” Great for walking and exploring. Difficult to drive in. It’s cute, but not particularly differentiated from many other locations.

It’s next to the (real) Altamira caves, which we didn’t make it to. After learning that you tour the fake version, we decided to skip the whole experience. In town, there were a variety of sites we checked out (the unremarkable Museum of Torture being one), but nothing seemed like a real must-do.

We stayed at **La Casa del Organista Santillana. It was nice enough, friendly owners.

Dinner was at **Los Blasones, which was quite good. Eat on the patio and order beef (what they’re known for).
