Welcome to the website of the Royal Palace of La Magdalena. If you already know Santander, you probably have visited the most emblematic place in the city without any doubt. If you have not been there yet, you will not leave Santander without getting to know it. An average of 60,000 people visit this space every year.
Summer headquarters of the prestigious Menéndez Pelayo International University, reference point in holding congresses in the city and essential tourist resource, the Royal Palace of La Magdalena is so important given its present and its past as summer residence of Kings Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia.
A century-old building full of life thanks to the adaptation and restoration works carried out by the Town Council of Santander to adapt this noble building to the current needs of use.
Through this website you will discover the privileged natural environment in which the Palace of La Magdalena is situated, set on the peninsula bearing its name and lined with urban beaches that turn this place into a unique space.
You will also have the chance to visit the inside of the palace, the Gala Dining Hall, the Dance Hall or the Royal Hall, being this last one a place chosen by many couples to celebrate their wedding.
All the aforementioned reasons are more than enough for the Town Council to continue promoting the Royal Palace of La Magdalena as the venue for various events as well as a cultural, educational and tourist space, offering moreover its guided tour to both Santander locals and visitors.
I hope you enjoy this virtual tour and visit the actual Palace afterwards.
