The port city of Santander is the capital of the autonomous community and historical region of Cantabria situated on the north coast of Spain.
In the 1980's the port of Santander was displaced from the center of the city and in recent years Santander is in a recovery of its southern edge facing the Bay of Santander. The transfer of all port activities to Puerto de Raos has been gradual, with the exception of maritime passenger traffic that is centered on its maritime station front of Paseo de Pereda. Currently the growth of port activity, increased value-added traffic (vehicles and containers mostly off the liquid and solid) for storage requiring a lot of ground already scarce and insufficient depth for some types of ships, is forcing the Port Authority to consider the long-term construction of a port outside the bay. On June 29, 2005 Santander celebrated the 250th anniversary of the granting of the title of "City."
