If you're driving, check out the route (or satnav) in advance, it is signed but the roads around can be confusing. Also, as far as I know, you have to park at the bottom of the hill, a little way from the entrance, and walk up the drive (quite steep). I know they do tours but we just did this... More

The tour was with a group of spouses/significant others from a conference in Santander. So much rich, interesting information about El Capricho de Gaudi. Very ingenious additions that were made to the house (rolling shutters in the salon, beautiful stained glass in the bathing area, beautiful solarium in the center). This house is colorful, eclectic, playful and very unusual.

Little to add to all the superlative reviews already written. We went early October, late afternoon and didn't have to queue at all, very relaxed wandering around this beautiful building. An introduction to me to the genius of Gaudi - now must book a trip to Barcelona!

Inspirational house and gardens. It may not be quite so good if it was really busy, but we parked OK and had the place pretty much to ourselves

What a wonderful building. An excellent video , in Spanish with English subtitles , gave the background and story behind the building, You need to avoid tour parties as they overwhelm this not very big house but the it is fabulous. Only 5 euros for adults, with a very reasonable gift shop and possibly the best loos in Spain !... More

We love Gaudi's architecture wherever we have fond it, but this building really is special. Thank goodness it has been restored and is now open to the public so that it can be enjoyed by all. (5 euro entrance fee, but well worth it) The explanatory video in the delightful greenhouse is very good but the house is the star!

We stayed in Comillas during our visit. This work by Gaudi was quite different to the others that we had visited ( Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera). Entry fee was only €5 and the free video constantly showing was very helpful.

On a tour of Northern Spain we stopped in this small town on the way to our final detention, Santiago. Had coffee in a quaint market area and enjoyed the small central market square . My wife saw the sign for the Caprichio Gaudi and went to investigate. Glad she did. Our guide made no reference to it and it... More

Loved being able to view Gaudi's first work and have a photo taken beside his statue admiring this beautiful building. What an amazing man and so ahead of his time. The sunflowers on the exterior are beautiful. Would definitely recommend a visit and we had no queues to wait in line. Fabulous
