  • Absolutely worth seeing and a MUST for Gaudi fans. I have seen to me at first alone and me later connected a leadership that has my attention to many details, which I would have otherwise overlooked. The ground floor there is a large shop with many great reminders and gift items.

  • Understand how and why their construction details and visit it, if it is worth meeting him. It is true it is small and apparently empty but details and its exterior is finely made style... Gaudí!

  • 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.
