It is a great route through the history of Santander. The life of its people, how the fire happened and what were the causes that made it lethal for the city. After February 15, 1941, Santander was no longer the same. It was the birth of what we know today, although few of us imagined the disaster caused by that fire. To understand, you have to listen to Héctor and then we will know. Totally recommended.

Highly recommended. The guide we had was Héctor who gave us a different tour without just telling the history of the city as usual. It shows that he really likes his work and that he transmits to people.

Spectacular is an understatement, Héctor is the cane!! entertaining, super fun and above all it helps you to know the history of Santander, I recommend it without any doubt

Very interesting trip through the history of Santander! The guide very prepared, friendly and patient! More than recommended!

Very pleasant, friendly, with a lot of information and helps to understand architecture and history of the city
