This is a very good way to spend half a day in Comillas. It cost us 15Euro for two adults and two under 14s and we thought it was really worthwhile. Very interesting and quirky house with an informative introductory video with English subtitles. There is also a children's activity sheet for younger ones. The house is small and sparsely... More

Gaudi was great from the beginning of his career. And El Capricho is there to prove it. It is bold in a different way, and adorable too. Parking is tricky, but even if you park at the other end of the town like us, it is just a 10 min walk through a lovely town to see.

The tour guides do a wonderful job in explaining the interesting parts of this historic "house". It's beautiful and historic. Knowing about it and seeing it helps to understand the history of the area.

Having read an out of date Lonely Planet I was expecting to find a restaurant in the Gaudi house, so was delighted to see it had all been done up and is now open for visits. I absolutely adored this building -- somehow Gaudi's style suits a quirky holiday cottage by the sea and it's great to see a full... More

I got an advice from a friend to visit this place. It is very popular and located in a very small town. Prepare for many visitors and difficult parkung. However, the house itself is a gem.

We recently visited the Capricho while walking the Camino de Santiago and we were so pleased we made time to see it. It is a unique attraction as it enables one to try and see and understand the creative genius of Gaudi. Once the concept of the building is explained it is fascinating to trace the concept in every room... More

The El Capricho de Gaudi is well worth exploring; we went early in the morning when it opened and we could wander around with very few other visitors so we could take photos easily. However within half an hour it had got a lot busier. if you are in this area it is worth going to.
