The Saja River is located on the Green Spain, in the north of the country, flowing through the autonomous community of Cantabria and into the Bay of Biscay. Part of its course is inside the Saja-Besaya Natural Park

The Saja's source is at 1,700 meters above sea level and it flows rapidly through a steep V-shaped basin during the first kilometers. Past the village of Fresneda the valley starts to open up and it develops a wide alluvial plain.

Regarding the ecologic conservation of the river, it is good from the source to the Santa Lucía bridge, from when it begins to show important alterations, and being catalogued as moderately conserved. Down the confluence with the Besaya the alterations are already serious or very serious, being catalogued as badly conserved [ [http://medioambientecantabria.com/dma/saja/saja.htm Study on the waters of the Saja] ] .
