Cast iron lamposts in Palacio de la Magdalena, Santander


Colomer Nou Parc has collaborated in the restoration project of the Magdalena Palace, the most emblematic building in Santander. The remodeling has included a comprehensive reform, where we can highlight the work carried out in the Paraninfo and in the house of the Guardians; as well as the gardens where our cast iron lanterns have been installed, model Castillo, with an elegant and sober design that provide both personality and beauty to this unique and singular enclave.

The lampposts have been installed on a hexagonal ashlar bench base so that the visitor can contemplate and recreate this privileged environment. Doing a bit of history of the palace, we have its construction between 1908 and 1912 with the plans of Gonzalo Brigas and Javier González de Riancho. The palace was built as a donation from the municipality of Santander to the kings Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia as a summer residence. Since its construction it has had different uses as the headquarters of the university, hospital or museum. In 1977 the City Council acquired the castle and its uses have been to host congresses and during the summer months the Menéndez Pelayo Institute University. It is very interesting the museum space that can be accessed, oriented as a tourist activity by offering a claim to the beautiful City of Santander.
