  • While Comillas is a nice little town with old historic centre the main attraction is surely the El Capricho de Gaudí. The house designed by Gaudí. Not comparable by park guelle or other Gaudí...  more »

  • Nice to the eyes. Did not go in because it was expensive. Around 10 euros per person. Thought it was quite expensive. A peculiar castle. It was the Marques of Comillas’ little present to himself. You can see it from the outside for free with no problem. That walkway takes you up to the main castle and to a gorgeous view of the Pontífice University. Hard to take pictures because there’s quite a good amount of people walking in front of it. However, it is a must see if you’re there.
  • This village is one of my favourite. Full of history, art and cute stories. The house is remarkable
  • Marvelous example of European modernism from architect Gaudí. You can see some of the inspirations that can be found in his later works as well. The entrance fee is 5€ per person
  • Fantastic visit. Well worth the time and money. So creative. Brilliant!
  • Exceptional mansion designed by Goudi as expected he streches your expectations of what is normal in architecture. This is a fantastic fantasy home for a lawyer who must have had a unconventional side to finance such a project. Every room and corner of this building has interesting and inspiring nuances. Don't go there for inspiration for your DIY you will come away feeling very inadequate. A masterclass in design and an insight into the brain of a genius.
