Where Should I go: Cantabria or Aragon?


Occupying Spain's northern coast, the region of Cantabria is known for its mountains, cave paintings, and the capital city of Santander. Its diverse landscape allows for locals and visitors alike to hit the beach in the summer and go on mountain adventures in the winter. While these natural features alone are breathtaking, there is also much to say for Cantabria's quaint seaside towns, fresh cuisine, and rich history.


If you want to head off the beaten track or simply get away from it all, head over to Aragon, Spain, where you won't have any trouble finding peace and quiet or uncovering ancient history in a region yet to be inundated with tourists. The population of Aragon does not exceed 1.5 million and less than a third resides outside of Zaragoza, which will make for the perfect adventure away from the crowds.
