The Complex of Peninsula of "La Magdalena"

The Peninsula of "La Magdalena, at the eastern end of Santander city, is a tombolo that closes the Santander stuary to the Cantabrian sea, to the north. This is the spectacular setting for the Palace of La Magdalena.

The Palace of La Magdalena was built between 1908 and 1013 to become a Royal residence. The 2nd Spanish Republic, founded the first Summer University in the Palace. And finally it became the main headquarters or the International University Menéndez Pelayo, or UIMP (http://www.uimp.es/). The Complex holds every year summer international courses for some thousands students.

UIMP will provide IESO with accommodation and other facilities in the Palace Complex.
