Host Cities

It has been 10 years since the last time La Vuelta rode through the cobblestone streets of Santillana del Mar. The Cantabrian locality hosted the 10th stage finish-line of La Vuelta 2006 but this will be its first time hosting a departure. Idyllic natural surroundings, impressive cliffs overlooking the sea and unique architecture have made this municipality a Historical-Artistic complex, an outstanding representative of Romanesque and Renaissance buildings.

As a result of its condition as a habitual transit area for travellers, Torrelavega knows how to be a good host. The Cantabrian locality will welcome the riders who will arrive, one by one, during the second time-trial with open arms. This will be its third time hosting an individual time-trial following its experience in 1973, won by Eddy Merckx, and in 2001, won by Columbian rider Santiago Botero.
