    Got with the ancient ruins of the Gothic and modernist facade on the one hand, and on the other its location in alto, together to the sea, with wonderful views, make this place very special. The exterminating angel presiding over everything is spectacular and gives a sinister touch.

    As graveyards go, this is one of the more interesting. It is set high up with some nice views. Some of the magnificent tombs and grave monuments have to be seen to be believed. Car parking is limited ...  more »

  • Worth the look in Comillas. Sets the atmoaphere
  • It is a very nice and romantic place. It is located at the top of a hill overlooking the sea. The days of wind and gray frame very well the place, already in itself is beautiful. A stone wall which houses several cemeteries and ancient tombs, mixed with some more modern, and everything under the close supervision of an angel carved in marble that crowns the only Tower of the cemetery. Without a doubt, a place not to be missed.

  • Luis Doménech I Montaner projected reform of the cemetery by integrating the ruins of the old Gothic Chapel in its structure. Domench project, aims to emphasize its appearance of ruin, cutting their profiles with the inclusion of the sculpture of the Angel Guardian of Jose LLimona (1894-1985), made in marble and putting it on the walls in the nave of the old church. In addition Domench projected, for the cemetery, the Pantheon of D. Joaquín de el Piélago family, with memorial tablet on the wave twisted by the modernist hose. Very nice and interesting.

  • Well worth making a stop at this place by its art, its geographical situation, its views and their sounds. A soundscape and an artistic heritage that you should know.

  • The cemetery is located in a privileged place, with incredible ocean views. Although it may seem ordinary, you have a back interesting story related to the angel who keeps custody of the deceased. In addition, one of the tombs is really amazing as far as architecture is concerned.
