Overview

We will depart from Santander towards Comillas at 9:30 am. The village of Comillas is surprisingly a cradle and model of the Catalonia modernism and it encompasses all elements necessary to satisfy any tourist and lover of modernist architecture.

On our way to Comillas we will do a short stop to visit the Sequoya Forest of Cabezón de la Sal. You will love this little amazing forest with trees over 40m hight. Our next stop will be to visit the Old Major Seminary (previously known as Comillas University). This majestic building was done by Catalan architects Joan Martorell and Lluís Domenech i Montaner and it includes different architectural influences. The Seminar is built on a hill where you will enjoy beautiful views of Comillas village and the Sobrellano Palace.

Afterward, we will visit the “Capricho de Gaudí” building. This is a mansion built by the famous Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí. This was one of the first modernist buildings constructed in Spain and one of the few constructions of Gaudí out of Catalonia.

Before leaving Comillas, we will do a scenic drive around the village to know some of its most relevant places: the old graveyard, the duchess’ House, or the monument to Antonio Lopez.

Finally, we will take a secondary road that crosses nice small villages on our way back to Santander. Enjoy this tour with us.
