  • It is worth to wait for the guided tour because it will open the eyes, there are many details and references that go unnoticed to the ordinary mortals. Very well by the Guide, who knew situate ourselves in the quotes of the time. The visit is not very long, if main floor, which is shown, is relatively small.

  • A must see if you loike Gaudi! Difficult to find a spot to park. But really beautiful to walk and experience!
  • A complete and cultural visit. An excellent guide. Don't forget Comillas
  • Expensive entry fee for such a small house. Exterior was great for photography. Interior interesting, but not so photogenic.
  • This quaint little property is a fantastic example of the genius of Gaudi. Well worth a visit if you're near there, say on your way to the Santander ferry port.
  • Best tour guide in a while. The house is quite impressive
