  • Located in the town of Comillas (Cantabria, Spain) was designed by the catalan architect Joan Martorell who was built by the first Marquis of Comillas, Don Antonio López y López, finishing works in the year 1888. This grandiose Gothic with a degree Venetian building is rectangular and has inside furniture of Antonio Gaudí and paintings by Eduardo Llorens. On the outside there are sculptures by Joan Roig. Next to the Palace is a beautiful chapel-pantheon of Court also central European and English perpendicular gothic furnishings of Gaudí and modernist sculptures by Joan Roig, Josep Llimona, Venancio Vallmitjana and Agapit Vallmitjana. Works as this Palace, Capricho de Gaudí, Pontifical University or the cemetery with its magnificent sculpture on the ruins of the old Gothic monastery El Ángel exterminador de Josep Llimona made important architects and Catalan Art Nouveau artists of the moment to leave their mark in this population. The Palace is currently owned by the Government of Cantabria, and is a Museum, but also used temporarily as the headquarters of the Comillas Foundation courses pending the rehabilitation of the Seminary of the building of the old Pontifical University.
