We came upon the Rose Garden in Parque de Matalenas as we were walking to Faro de Cabo Mayor. It’s in a such a scenic location, overlooking Sardinero Beach. The setting was so beautiful that we returned a couple of days later. The garden is well tended; a gang of gardeners arrived during our first visit.
If you’re visiting Santander, then a trip to the Rose Garden in Parque de Matalenas is highly recommended.
