Santander is the capital of Cantabria. It features a small historic center and a buch of beaches on the Cantabrian sea. Its most famous tourist attraction is the Magdalena Palace which was used as a summer getaway by the Spanish royalty.

Petra, hidden in a deep gorge in Jordan, was once described as "the rose red city half as old as time." Yet it is still young compared to neighboring Iron Age settlements.
