Santoña and its history have always been linked to the sea, to an extent that it is the major canning port in Cantabria. Based above all on the fishing of tuna and its famous anchovies in olive oil.
Divided into two areas Santoña town sits on a plain, and to the rear a mountainous area on the slopes of El Brusco and El Buciero.
Significant are its military fortifications, set around the Buciero mountain, which is strategic evidence and importance of the port. The forts of San Martín, San Carlos and Mazo or Napoleon are still in good condition.
