    We took the English tour and it was extremely worthwhile. Aldo gave us 45 minutes of detailed, informative and interesting information about the house, town and many aspects of history & culture.  more »

    The nice thing is it from outside, on the inside there is nothing interesting. Give a short walk in the surrounding area you can see, although logically entering the enclosure can be seen better.

    It is one of the forced sites if you visit Comillas. It is priceless, the building is a jewel inside and out. the guided tour is worthwhile, the day we were there was a brilliant girl who explained everything very well and made us very pleasant visit. The gardens are also very nice to walk around and do some photos very cool.

  • We loved this little side-trip on our road trip - for 3 euros you can visit this well preserved house and garden. They have limited English tours but the pamphlet is useful. Great gift shop as well.
  • A must see. Don't miss this, great value for 5 euro. Priceless and a national treasure.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful. Great guided tour included with the entry price
  • Nice guided tour. Low price. Awesome art.
  • Nice to look around for a few hours. But quite small.
