  • Gaudí's

A monumental town with outstanding examples of Modernist architecture –including Gaudí's Capricho monument– in an exceptionally beautiful natural setting with spectacular beaches.Read more...

What to see Gaudí's 'Capricho' –with its unusual arabesque style and the ornate decoration on its walls– is the Modernist symbol of Comillas. The Sobrellano Palace and the Pontificia University are another two important monuments. The first is in the neo-Gothic style, and Gaudí was also involved in its furnishings –it's well worth visiting visit its chapel. The University is an enormous building with interesting decoration overlooking the city. We suggest two viewing points: the monument to the Marquis of Comilla and the viewing point of Santa Lucía, both of which offer spectacular views over the coastline. The town has a charming harbour and a number of stately houses in the area around the square. Nature and beaches Its coastline is ideal for water sports. It has broad beaches with fine golden sand; the best beaches are Comillas and Oyambre. The Oyambre nature reserve is a broad strip of coastline with sand dunes, cliffs and marshes. It is very popular with birdwatchers. Excursions Barely half an hour away you'll find the mediaeval town of Santillana del Mar and the fishing villages of Suances and San Vicente de la Barquera. We recommend a visit to the caves of El Soplao and Altamira and its museum. It is part of the rock art of the Cantabrian which has been awarded the World Heritage designation.
