6.3.2024: MASSIVE INCORPORATION OF THE ACCREDITED CONSULS IN CANTABRIA TO THE CORPS OF THE NOBILITY OF CANTABRIA:

Traditionally, diplomacy and diplomats have been closely related to the nobility. In fact, until not long ago it was necessary to be noble to exercise diplomatic functions and the Grands of Spain carried a Spanish diplomatic passport until the end of the 20th century. Therefore, nothing is more natural than incorporating the diplomats accredited to that same region into the corps of the Nobility of the Region.

The diplomats who received our Medal of Honor was:

1) Ambassador  Excmo. Sr. D. Jaime de Ferra y Gisbert, it was some time later that we began to give this distinction to the consuls accredited in our region who had a special role in the social and cultural life of Cantabria and a greater presence, in our opinion, in the life of the Cantabrians, this is how we recognized the

3) Ilma. Sra. Dña. Carmen Ealo de Sá - representative of Brazil,

4) Ilmo. Sr. D. Román Villaescusa y Mora - Honorary  Consul of Republic of Malta, and finally the

5) Ilmo. Sr. D. Álvaro Enrique de Villamor y Soraluce - Honorary Consul of Poland and the memory of the site of Auschwitz, a true gentleman, who represents one of the Slavic peoples that we have so much affection for and that it is an honor to have with us.

Given the extraordinary professional career and award recognitions that all of them have, the Governing Board of the Corps has granted the four consuls accredited in Cantabria, distinguished with our Medal of Honor, the status of Honorary Members of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria as naturally befits such high-ranking representatives in our region. Once we distinguish the best from among the most outstanding, once again positioning ourselves as a reference institution for excellence.

20.3.2022: The Corps of Nobility of  Cantabria donate funds for the Ukrainian children.

Given the situation caused by the war in Ukraine, our Corporation seeks formulas that allow it to help those most affected. Since 1986 numerous foundations and associations have emerged in Spain to temporarily shelter children from Ukraine and Belarus who, after the Chernobyl disaster, saw how their physical and psychological health improved during the periods they spent in Spain, away from their homes. This year we have decided to donate an amount of the Corporation's money, equivalent to the total income from the annual membership fees, to one of those associations, the NGO "Ven con Nosotros" ("Come with Us") so that they can use it to increase the number of Ukrainian children that this year they can bring to Spanish homes so that they can forget for a few months the tragedy that their country is experiencing.
