Discover magnificent modernist architecture in the beautiful town of Comillas. On this trip, you'll get to see breathtaking buildings such as the Gaudí designed villa El Capricho.
Comillas and Capricho Trip
After picking you up at 9:30 am from your hotel or the meeting point, we'll set off for Comillas. Along the way, we'll stop at the Bosque de las Sequoyas forest in Cabezón de la Sal to marvel at its 40-metre tall trees.
45 minutes later we'll arrive at our destination. Did you know Comillas became a summer destination for the Castillian aristocracy in the 20th century? We'll visit the ancient Seminario Mayor, located on top of a hill where we'll enjoy spectacular views of the town and the Palacio de Sobrellano palace.
Next, we'll head to the Villa Quijano, more commonly known as the Capricho de Gaudi. This mansion from the artist's orientalist period is one of just three buildings he designed outside Catalonia.
Our tour will end with a panoramic bus tour of Comillas. We'll see the majestic Ángel Exterminador sculpture that stands guard over the ancient cemetery. We'll also visit the centre of Comillas to discover the Fuente de los Tres Caños fountain.
At the end of the trip we'll head back to Santander and the activity will end at the starting point at 2 pm.
