Festival Hall

Since 1991, the region has had the Cantabria Festival Hall, one of the best performance stages in the country.

Projected by the architect from Navarra Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza, its exterior offers a synthesis of styles that show the uniqueness of its surroundings. Located in Avda. Reina Victoria, opposite the bay of Santander, the building shows a beauty in keeping with the scenery.

Its location, in one of the most important areas of the city and its façade, covered with fine materials, turn the Festival Hall into an architectonic complex that is completely integrated with its surroundings. The colours of the sea and the land are also joined, once again, in this beautiful construction to reflect the importance that this synchrony means for all the people of Cantabria.

The Festival Hall was created with a clearly multi-purpose vocation, in such a way that all types of events, both cultural and conventions, could be held there. Equipped with four rooms, the Festival Hall offers extensive, functional installations fitted out for any kind of event.
