Comillas, the town of the archbishops
Comillas is a lovely town on the coast of Cantabria. It has retained an elegant and aristocratic charm combined with the picturesquism of fishing towns.
The impressive building of the Pontificial university crowns a hill that dominates the town.
"Modernisme in Cantabria"
Comillas is famous for being one of the few places out of Catalonia where the famous architect Antoni Gaudí worked. The small palace of "El Capricho" is a delicate modernist building today used as a restaurant.
