    Main facade

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The reason of the presence of Catalan architects in Comillas, as Joan Martorell and Antoni Gaudí is that the marquis of Comillas made his fortune in Barcelona and was established there. He made part of the cultural elite of the city, which was at that time marvelled by the wonders of Modernism.

    In fact, the present marquis of Comillas is also count of Güell, as they descend also from the famous family that supported Gaudí .

    OLD TOWN

    by RudoElCojonudo Written Jan 21, 2008
    Comillas'  old town.

    Comillas has a nice old town, no worse than Santilla's, which is about 20 minutes by car.
    Walk around the streets and have some tapas with wine could be a good lunch option.
