Comillas and Capricho Trip
After picking you up at the selected time from your hotel or the meeting point, we'll set off for Comillas.
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.
