About this experience

Are all the masterpieces of Catalonia modernism located in Catalonia? Not at all!
Leave Santander with us and discover Comillas: a Cantabria city enriched by beautiful modernist palaces made by Catalan geniuses like Antoni Gaudì and Lluís Domenech i Montaner.

We will leave Santander in the morning on a comfortable bus. On our way to Comillas, we will stop by the Cabezon de la Sal, an impressive sequoias forest that will blow your mind.
Then we will arrive in Comillas and our first visit will be the Major Seminary, once known as Comillas University. It's a magnificent building that shows the eccentric ways of Catalonian Modernism and of its author Domenech i Montaner. Our professional and passionate guide will tell you everything about the different architectural influences you will find here, perfectly harmonized in one, coherent, style.

Afterward, we are going to see the other one modernist masterpiece of Comillas: the Capricho de Gaudì. This bizarre palace, bizarre and beautiful as everything Gaudì ever made, is one of the first work of the Catalan genius. You will remember its strange tower and the general surreal atmosphere of the villa!
Gaudì did design only three buildings outside Catalonia: this is one of them.

Before coming back to Santander, we will make a short visit through the rest of the town. Last but not least you will admire the solemn sculpture of the Angel Exterminador and the ruins of the old monastery.
