Tour description

Relive one of Santander's biggest catastrophes and how the city resurfaced after "El Siniestro", the great fire that changed everything forever that February 1941. February 15, 1941, night falls. Throughout the day a gale has risen that has grown to be almost a hurricane. A glow in the horizon of roofs begins to draw the attention of the population and the alarms in the streets sound ... The great fire of Santander has been unleashed, nothing will be the same again. Discover with Experienta the history of this event that changed Santander, in which much of the city was reduced to ashes and how this modified its structure and the way of life of the people of the place, to become as we know it today. Enjoy a different itinerary through the less known side of the center of Santander, through the most representative monuments and icons of the urban center, from a "catastrophic" point of view as well as instructive. Feel as if you were an inhabitant of the time under the explanations of a guide involved and willing to give you a fun visit in which nothing else you have to worry about enjoying the activity without risk of being devoured by the flames. We promise you that you will never see the city of Santander with the same eyes.

Además de muy interesante y entretenido, lo mejor del tour ha sido q aunque Santander no tiene casco antiguo, hoy Héctor ha conseguido que lo tenga porque yo lo he visto. Esta es la gran cualidad que tiene este gran guía.

No conocía nada Santander y después de este tour conozco una parte bastante interesante, gracias Héctor. A pesar del cansancio de más de 12 horas de viaje, he de decir que las 2 horas y media se me han hecho muy amenas y nada cansadas.
