Once you are in Santillana, you will meet the photographer who will accompany you during this memorable day. Together, you will start the photographic excursion through Santillana equipped with your analog cameras (if you do not have a camera, one will be provided). Together you will visit the town of Santillana de Mar in search of those angles and perspectives that will make you take incredible photos.


This is the perfect activity for photography and architecture lovers. Strolling through Santillana del Mar is the best way to get to know it: its streets, the collegiate church, some artisan workshops, medieval houses, and heraldic shields have made it part of the select club of the "most beautiful towns in Spain". You will discover the beauty of this town while you receive notions of photography, always thinking of livening up the day and enjoying the experience.


After a walk of about two hours through the town, you will go to the laboratory to develop the negatives. To do this, you will have to travel in our vehicles a few kilometers until you reach the photography studio. Once there, you will learn very quickly to perform some tasks in complete darkness and we reveal the reels (the negative).


Afterward, you will make a stop for lunch. Our suggestion is that you enjoy good local cuisine in one of the restaurants in Santillana. After the lunch break, you will meet the photographer again in his studio, and to carry out the process of developing the photos. For lovers of traditional photography, this is probably the most beautiful part: enlarging the photographs with red light.


The photographer will explain to you the basic development techniques and you will be able to enlarge as many photos as you want ... in this part-time passes by flying and without realizing it we will have done the whole afternoon. At the end of the day, each one will take home the negatives they have made and the enlargements of your photos.
