Comillas is one of many small townships we visited as we travelled across northern Spain from La Coruña to Lourdes, France. Located in the autonomous community of Cantabria, Comillas is a charming and beautiful town most noted for its cemetery, old university, palace, monuments, and Gaudi’s summer home.
Here are the best of my Comillas photos:
Unfortunately, by the time we arrived at Gaudi’s summer home, it was too late to go in. We couldn’t even see the house from the locked gate. This image is from creative commons:
To explore Cantabria we stayed in the colourful village of Santillana Del Mar (a village that is not actually at the sea, despite its name). From here we made day trips to Comillas, Santander, Altamira, and we went inside El Castillo in Puente Viesgo where we saw cave drawings estimated to be 40,000 years old.
