Bachelor in geography, Master in natural hazards, Expert in geographic information systems, Environmental Educator and Official Guide of the CCAA of Cantabria. But beyond qualifications, what matters to me is to make known my land and my city and for that I am here, to convey what I know in a way true to the facts but always from the good vibes and fun, because there is no to forget that here one does not come to class but that this is to have fun learning. I can offer you nothing more than my willingness to enjoy the experience and the promise that I will do everything in my power to make your walks with me memorable.

About the tour

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.
