Store your luggage around Santander with Bounce

Santander is a coastal city situated on the Bay of Biscay in Northern Spain. It may not get the headlines of Madrid or Barcelona, but it’s a worthy destination for anyone looking for a beguiling experience when traveling through Spain. There’s plenty of culture throughout its historic city center, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a tourist who doesn’t spend plenty of time along the waterfront. 

The focal point of Santander for travelers is undoubtedly the Paseo de Pereda, an elegant promenade overlooking the city’s stellar beaches. It’s ideal for a leisurely stroll and enjoying the views. The Playa del Sardinero is adjacent, and it’s the most popular beach with great views of the craggy coastline that surrounds the city. 

There’s so much more than the beach to explore in Santander, so here’s a quick guide for where to start and where to put your bags if you need luggage storage.

Luggage storage in Santander

If you're doing it right, you'll be spending most of your time in Santander either on the beach or exploring the historic city center. That's a lot of walking (and swimming). You certainly won't want to be lugging your heavy bags around the whole time, so you’ll want to find a secure place to leave your bags on travel days or day trips. 

The best luggage storage Santander has to offer is a service like Bounce, which is highly superior to train station luggage lockers or dubious left luggage facilities. Each storage spot is placed conveniently near attractions and travel hotspots. There’s also 24/7 support with a friendly (and highly dedicated) staff, and the Bounce guarantee ensures your belongings are well taken care of at one of its luggage storage locations.

Top things to do in Santander

For history buffs and architecture enthusiasts, there’s plenty to see in Santander. The Palacio de la Magdalena is a palace set atop a craggy outcrop overlooking the city. The Santander Cathedral is a gorgeous church blending Gothic and Romanesque styles that’s in the heart of the city and worth stopping by. There are also plenty of museums in Santander, surprising for a city of its size, with Museo Marítimo del Cantábrico showcasing the city’s seafaring tradition. 

It’s Spain, after all, so that will mean late dinners over bottles of wine and plenty of tapas in the afternoon. Santander has a number of world-class restaurants (including a few Michelin-starred spots) for celebratory occasions, and there are countless tapas bars for quick bites and socializing. Shopping-wise, there will be unique local shops and boutiques to sift through while you explore the city center. 

While being spontaneous and seeing where the day takes you is a great way to experience Santander, here are a few ideas for where to start: 

Museums in Santander

Palacio de la Magdalena

This palace is located on the Magdalena Peninsula overlooking the beach, so there are not many excuses not to drop by on your way to and from Playa del Sardinero. It’s one of the must-visit places that shows up on lists and travel guides, and for good reason. The palace was built by King Alfonso XIII in the early 1900s as a summer residence, with parks and gardens for royals to stroll through. The lush Parque de la Magdalena makes up the palace grounds. This park and its gardens are both stately and peaceful, and they make for an enjoyable stroll.

Palacio de la Magdalena Bag Policy

It doesn’t have a formal museum, per se, so there aren't many amenities like lockers or concessions, but visitors can explore its lavish interior and appreciate the neo-Gothic architecture. There isn't a formal bag policy, but you'll be trekking out to the peninsula and beach when you visit, so it's best to arrange luggage storage on the way to the museum and beach.

Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology of Cantabria 

The Museo de Prehistoria y Arqueología de Cantabria is located in the city center near Santander train station and showcases the ancient archaeological history of Cantabria. It features prehistoric artifacts, cave art replicas, and exhibits on the region's ancient cultures that inform cultural differences between the distinctive Spanish regions to this day. It is right in the city center, so if you feel the need to learn a few things before hitting the tapas bar, this is your spot.

Museum of Prehistory and Archaeology of Cantabria  Bag Policy

The museum doesn't have a bag policy or lockers, but there are several floors of exhibits to see, so you won't want to lug your bags around. Fortunately, the Museum's stellar location within the city center makes it easy to arrange luggage storage nearby.

Cantabrian Maritime Museum

Located further out (fittingly) on the Magdalena Peninsula towards the water, Museo Marítimo del Cantábrico is dedicated entirely to the maritime heritage of Santander. Being a coastal city, you really cannot understand Santander without learning about its contributions to Spanish seafaring and navigation.

You’ll find interactive exhibits, replicas, and artifacts detailing the ships that sailed out of Santander’s harbor and the sailors who braved the Atlantic and beyond. It’s located near some of the best attractions, like the Palace and beach, so it’s a fun stop on your way to and from the water.

Cantabrian Maritime Museum Bag Policy

The bag policy here is not clearly stated, and it’s a small museum, so services are limited. If you’re heading to the water as well, it's best to leave the luggage somewhere secure (and dry). 

Museums in Spanish cities like Santander rarely have baggage storage lockers onsite. It's also unclear if these institutions allow larger items like roller bags or suitcases, so it's best to find luggage storage facilities before heading to the museum. In any case, getting around will be more convenient.

Shopping in Santander

Mercado de la Esperanza

It’s always great to stroll through a traditional market when visiting cities in Spain, and the historic Mercado de la Esperanza in Santander’s city center is no different. Keep an eye out for free samples, especially the vendors selling cheese.

El Corte Inglés

One of Spain's most prominent department stores has a location right near Santander’s city center. It’s a classy space, but it leans towards essentials rather than bespoke aesthetics like those found in boutiques. It’s definitely handy for practical purchases if you forgot to pack something.

Muelle de las Carabelas

This waterfront stretch has plenty of local shops selling maritime-themed souvenirs and nautical items. It’s a pleasant place to take an afternoon stroll regardless of your shopping goals. 

Few of the best Santander shopping destinations are malls, so you won't find any lockers or storage units for your baggage. Finding a secure luggage storage service is the best way to lighten the load for your shopping spree, and Bounce has storage spots near the best retail districts.

Restaurants in Santander

Santander’s restaurant landscape features a mix of Spanish delicacies from across different regions. Being a coastal city, there are plenty of seafood options, especially their hearty fish stews. There are also plenty of tapas bars throughout the city, and Basque pintxos are very popular for snacking with wine or beer. Being located in Spain's northern Cantabria region, wild game like boar and deer are common options alongside Iberian ham.

El Serbal

In a world where using strictly local ingredients has become passé, El Serbal still manages to stand out with its hyper-local, hyper-seasonal, and ultra-delicious menu of Cantabrian favorites. Every foodie traveling through Santander heads there for its unique blend of traditional and modern. Steak tartare or flambé are the favorites for the surprising flavors infused in these staples, and the bread is baked fresh daily. All of this is expertly paired with local wines that the menu is based on. 

Agua Salada

If you want a simple and elegant place for a romantic evening, look no further than this superb bistro. While it serves contemporary versions of traditional Spanish food, Agua Salada maintains a traditional decor and ambiance, and the service resembles an upscale dining destination rather than a comfortable, moderately-priced bistro. Though the food isn’t groundbreaking by any means, it doesn't need to be considering the quality, and this place just gets the details right for service and atmosphere. 

Bodega del Riojano

There’s nothing better than a Spanish wine bar, especially one as historic as Bodega del Riojano. The setting is about as authentic as it gets, with exposed brick and wooden beams holding this joint together. The menu is even more traditional, with Cantabrian favorites like snails and stuffed green peppers served alongside hyper-local wine. You have to order ham to sample some of the choice iberico hanging from behind the counter, but it tastes as succulent as it looks.

While having your luggage on you at a tapas bar may fly, it’s inappropriate to drag your roller bag through a Michelin-starred restaurant. And if you’re planning on hitting a few bars after dinner, it’s really best to leave the bags somewhere secure before heading out for the night. That’s why Bounce places its luggage storage facilities near nightlife and dining hotspots. 

Conclusion 

Santander is a deeply underrated gem for traveling in Spain. There is simply so much culture on offer, and with the stunning coastline at hand, you’ll be on the go for the entire trip. Being able to store luggage safely during a trip to Santander can go a long way to making your stay more enjoyable. 

Of all the luggage storage services available in Santander, Bounce is easily the most reliable. Shady train station lockers or a left luggage office at a museum simply can’t compete with Bounce’s reliability. Bounce has useful travel guides for cities near Santander, like Bilbao, Gijón, and León, along with convenient locations in each city. So if you’re heading to Spain, you know who you can rely on Bounce when you need to book luggage storage.
