If you are in this part of Spain and a fan of Gaudi you should definately stop by "el Capricho" de Gaudi. It is one of his earlier works. Join the tour because the girls informative narration of the house is well worth it. All the windows make different melodies when opened and closed, absolutely fantastic.

I am not a very big fan of visiting building especially if you have to pay. But I have to say that this was really worth. 100% of the merit is the guides, that are working here, all of them passionate and able to catch the attention of people. The house have a lot of details and stories around which... More

El Capricho (The Caprice) was one of the first houses built by Gaudi. The house was built upon the theme of sunflowers expressed by its many sunflower tiles and its layout which was designed to synchronize the use of rooms with the movement of the sun just as a sunflower tracks the sun. There's a great video which explains the... More

As a true Gaudi fan, I was delighted to learn of this house in Comillas. One of his earliest works, it isquite modest compared to the fabulous works in Barcelona, but well worth a visit if you're in this area.

This was my first visit to a Gaudi building and I had high expectations as I had heard a lot about the buildings in Barcelona. I was not disappointed! It is a small house, packed with innovation, very close to the town centre in Comillas. The house has an interesting story attached and it was left deserted for many years.... More

This is Gaudi's first masterpiece and one of the very few outside the Barcelona area. Well worth the the trip to Comillas.

We did visit the Gaudi house on a rainy day and by coincident could attend the english tour. This was the best that happened to us. The house itself is impressive but with the explanations given by the guide, it is double the fun. If possible, check the webpage and their blog and try to find the times for the... More

On a rather rainy day we have decided to drop by El Capricho. We were very lucky because an English guided tour was about to start. The property itself is beautiful and you should try to grasp every detail of the architecture and decor. Wonderful. The tour gave so much more interesting insights and was very entertaining. Thanks Julia!

An amazing capricho (big house) from Gaudi. Even if you are not particulary interested in architecture or Gaudi himself you will enjoy this visit - my kids enjoyed it as well !! I do advise you to first watch the video in the green house and then start the tour unless you are lucky enough and arrive in time for... More

Not everything is original, but still worth visiting if you're into architecture. Entrance fee was €5 which included a map of the place in English (or Spanish) and the possibility to join a tour in English (or Spanish). If you come by car, there's a car park (see sign at roundabout) outside the town. It's a 15 min walk. The... More
