Such an amazing day we had visiting this gem hidden in a small seaside town in Cantabria! Dated in the early years of Gaudi's career, this stunning piece of architecture will leave everyone speechless, if not for the aesthetic style, than at least for the...More

Saw the house during our ferry crossing and thought would visit. Lovely to see a place so well kept despite a lack of government funding. Very reasonably priced and even had a guide who did an English speaking tour. Very polular. Lots of interesting facts...More

It is simply astonishing how such a small seaside city in Cantabria has such a breathtaking manour. Simply an architectonic beauty

The only disappointment on the trip so far. The house has all of the allure and style of a business meeting venue off the M4. Sagrada Familia this is not.

You have to see it when you come to Comillas. English guide available at 12:30 and 16:30. It is very interesting and beautiful building. Entrance for 5€.

What an amazing bargain for only 5 euros, and such a treat to explore a Gaudi house without huge crowds of Barcelona. As a Gaudi fan, we made a special effort to visit Comillas, and so glad we did. We went at about 5pm and...More

The house is definitely worth a visit. We didn't take the guided tour, but the leaflet you get at the entrance gave some good information. It's a beautiful example on Gaudi's extraordinary sense of art and architecture. Comillas is a very charming town as well...More
