The Cantabrians are the inhabitants living in the region of Cantabria, in northern Spain.[2] Sometimes they are referred to as "montañeses" (in English, "Highlander").


The term Cantabrian is also a demonym for the people of Canterbury, New Zealand although in most contexts this is unlikely to produce confusion.
