Impressive but couldn't see inside
Jul 2019 • Friends
The Pantheon is an impressive landmark which can be seen from the balconies of Gaudi's house and obviously to visitors to the Palace. Unfortunately when we were there is was closed and we were unable to see inside, which I would have liked to have done.

Another Church
Apr 2017 • Couples
Can you believe how many churches there are to visit in Spain, most with their own claim to fame however some are just plain village churches but not this one. The design of the items inside the church is as important as the design of the church it's self. Again this church has a history to it and if you have a spanish guide he will tell you all about it so no comment here from me to spoil your holiday delights

Architect Protege of Gaudi, a beautiful work of art.
May 2015 • Couples
Joan Martorell a protégé of Antonio Gaudí designed this church. Inside the church, if you take the tour, you will find the royal seating and pews are designed by Gaudi. Not only is the design of this church interesting, it is also important to note that Martorell was a professor and employer of Gaudí. The two were closely aligned in many areas. The pantheon is located next to the palace and it's design is neogothic. It looks like a small cathedral, built by the 2nd marquis of Comillas as a house of worship for the family. It dates back to 1881. Also of significance is that Martorell headed the committee who selected Antoni Gaudí as the architect to take over the design & construction of Sagrada Familia after Francisco de Paula del Villar y Lozano, the original architect retired in 1883. Martorell sent a lot of work Gaudi's way. And so as the two architects, and friends share a closeness in styles, Al Capricho, Gaudi's building, is close to Capilla-Panteón, which is a part of the Palacio de Sobrellano both designed by Martorell. It's great to take in all of these interesting buildings, the history and imagination. Interesting to note: In Comillas, Spain, Martorell designed the Palacio de Sobrellano, and the Capilla Panteón de los Marqueses de Comillas, and helped design the Universidad Pontificia. The tour was only 3 Euros but you must visit the Palace in order to view the inside of the Panteon. It was worth seeing, do check for the tour. I believe there may be some food, snacks and souvenirs available at Gaudis El Capricho.

Beautiful Architecture
Aug 2014 • Couples
The Chapel-Pantheon is located in the gardens of Sobrellano, and the style is Neo-Gothic. This was the work of the architect Joan Martorell. The work was finished in 1881. The material used was stone. The main façade has a tall tower. The interior has beautiful stained glass windows and the first furniture designed by Gaudi. There are pantheons of writers like Joseph Llimona and the Vallmitjana Brothers. This structure is like a small cathedral.
