  • Even if you've already seen houses of Gaudi in Barcelona, this place is worth a visit and even a detour. They are open until 8pm, probably best time to visit is early morning or lunch time to avoid la...  more »
  • This is one of the first buildings to have had designs by Gaudi in my opinion it is nicer than his later works. There is a lot to take in and we only had time on our trip to view it from the outside a...  more »

  • Great visit if you are in Comillas. Make sure you catch the guided tour every hour on the hour (only in Spanish), as it reveals a lot about the house and Gaudi which is not obvious to the non-specialist.
  • Fantastic. Worth visiting it if you are in the area of Santander.. even my kids enjoyed this early work of Gaudi. I recommend you first watch the video in the greenhouse with english subtitles and then enjoy the capricho..
  • An interesting insight into the early work of Gaudi. Gaudy as Gaudi is. A very interesting and informative tour guide by Carlos in English - mucho gracias - well worth going on. A fantastic chance encounter. Recommend it to anyone visiting this area.
  • Interesting building and nice to discover Gaudi architecture outside of Barcelona, but the €5 entrance fee seems a bit high.
  • A nice place to spend an hour in. There are English guided tours of the house twice a day, at 12:30 and 16:30. They are included in the entrance price which is also symbolic.
