Sturdy, solemn, stone,
Keeper of bygone secrets,
Whisper one to me.
I was in Santander, Spain, on Monday. I took a walk along the sea front promenade of the famous Sardinero beach and came across this palatial home (casa palacio) called Los Pinares, which belongs to the Santos family.
I was drawn to its dark gothic look and majestuous stance. Imagine the dark corners, secret passages, and magnificent furniture and artworks it must enclose…
I didn’t get close enough to take a photo of the main door, so the outer gates will have to do, for now. I hope I can take a closer look at the outside, or even inside one day…
(The last picture isn’t mine).
