About the tour

We will understand the process by which a fishing village becomes one of the most important centers of power of the 19th century in Spain and a summer resort for some of the richest families in the country. Did you know that Comillas was the capital of Spain and a royal residence, if Gaudí was actually in Comillas or why Comillas is known as the Villa of the Archbishops? From the starting point we will head towards the Campa de Sobrellano, where we will appreciate some of the most unique architectural complexes in Comillas, such as the Capricho de Gaudí, one of his main works of youth outside Catalonia or the Palacio de Sobrellano, the great palace built by the Marquis in his native Comillas. From there we will leave for the area of the Pontifical University, where the best modernist architects of the time left their mark and origin of the current Comillas Pontifical University. Due to its opening, there were times when Comillas had almost more seminarians than population, which has marked this fishing village. We will take the opportunity to also get to know the Old Cemetery, a real gem for its location on the seashore and which keeps the history of the ex-commune of Comillas. We will also learn about unique characters, town festivals, gastronomy or fun anecdotes. We will visit the main monuments of the town, but we will also go to the places where we can appreciate the best views or we will know places that normally go unnoticed. - Plaza de los Tres Caños - Casa Ocejo - La Portilla - El Capricho - Chapel Pantheon - Palacio Sobrellano - La Portalada (Seminary) - Park of the Statue - Casa del Duque - El Espolón - Corro San Pedro - Iglesia San Cristóbal - Corro Campíos
