Cantabria Information

The autonomous community of Cantabria is situated in the north of Spain and is bathed by the Cantabrian sea. It borders to the north with the Cantabrian sea, eastwards with the Basque Country, on the south with Castile and León, and on the west with the Asturias.

Cantabria has two geographical zones clearly differentiated, the inland and the coast.

The most important geographical accident of the interior of this autonomy is the Cantabrian mountain chain and, in contraposition, the more significant geographical accidents of the coastal band are the Garlic and the Major end. The coasts have very beautiful beaches, predominating over the steep littoral and with cliffs. The interior is dominated by the heights of “Los Picos de Europa” being the major summit of the community Peña Vieja, with 2.613 m of altitude.

The rivers are short and mighty. The most important are: the Agüera, the Asón, the Miera, the Pas, the Besaya, the Nansa and the Deva. The Ebro, the mightiest river of the Peninsula, is born in Fontibre, but does not have very mich riverbed in this community and belongsto the Mediterranean basin.

The geography of Cantabria, likewise, stands out for possessing the most important hydrographic vertex of Spain: called Peña Labrada, where there come together the Cantabrian slope, the basin of the Douro and the Ebro one.
