La villa de comillas fue nombrada Conjunto Histórico Artístico desde el año 1985. conocida como “Villa de los Arzobispos, en los siglos XVII y XVIII, fueron cinco los prelados que ocuparon diócesis de gran importancia. Lo más conocido de Comillas es el Ángel exterminador de Comillas en el cementerio, conocido como el Angel guardián. El capricho de Gaudi, El Palacio de Sobrellano y la Universidad Pontificia. Comillas llegó a ser la capital de España durante un día, el 5 de septiembre de 1881, tras la decisión del rey Alfonso XII de reunir a su consejo de ministros en la villa. Fue también la primera localidad española en tener luz eléctrica, patentada en 1879 por Thomas Edison

Esta fue mi primera excursión con esta compañía, y noe defraudó.

El capricho de Gaudí, aunque lo vi en fotos promocionales, es mucho mejor en persona. Aun siendo un antojo de máximo Díaz de Quijano (el indiano a quien iba destinada la casa), estaba muy bien pensada para ser una casa sostenible. El palacio de Sobrellano y la cripta del mismo nombre situados al lado del Capricho también merecen una visita.

Después hicimos una parada en el bosque de las secuoyas, un impresionante lugar en el cual es fácil perderse.

El guía, Rafa, nos dio unas explicaciones muy interesantes durante el trayecto, se preocupó por todos los asistentes y nos dio tiempo para visitar todos los lugares con tranquilidad (además de ofrecerse a hacernos fotos).

Sin duda es de las mejores opciones (por no decir la mejor) si quieres conocer la Cantabria oculta. No sólo son personas profesionales, si no que se han preocupado todo el rato en sorprendernos y siempre con una sonrisa y mucha simpatía.

No solo hice esta excursión con ellos, si no varias y han logrado que este viaje sea inolvidable. Yo no me lo pensaría.

Realmente sorprendente y extraordinario. Vale la pena reservar para tener “visita guiada”que te explica multitud de detalles que si no se te pasan desapercibidos. Una obra del “joven Gaudi” fuera de Catalunya antes de sus más conocidas realizaciones en Barcelona

Piensas que quizás con verla por fuera es suficiente, recomendable 100% la visita guiada que está incluida dentro del precio de la entrada, te explican las curiosidades de la casa y fascina aún más.

Lo visitamos de casualidad, estando un dia por la zona. Es un pueblo muy bonito, y el capricho de Gaudí y el palacio son preciosos. Merece la pena la visita.

La casa tienen una planta en u con un invernadero en medio. Ilummina a la vez que proporciona un agradable jardín de invierno. Los trabajos de hierro y madera son preciosos. Gaudi es todo atención a los detalles. El jardín está muy bien cuidado, dá gusto.

Tuvimos la suerte y la dicha de contar con Exploring Cantabria para realizar dos visitas: Santillana del Mar, Potes y Comillas; Picos de Europa, Santo Toribio y El Soplao. Desde el primer momento en que nos comunicamos por correo electrónico, Gabriela Mayans se mostró sumamente profesional: contestaba inmediatamente, daba la información precisa y se mostró muy flexible para combinar dos paseos en uno y así facilitarnos el poder aprovechar al máximo nuestro tiempo en Cantabria. Quedamos totalmente complacidos: la camioneta es súper cómoda, Gabriela es muy cuidadosa al manejar, sabe dar explicaciones claras y completas, aparte de que nos trajo una carpeta con informacion sobre todos los lugares visitados, siempre fue puntual, cordial y amable, y tenía muy bien organizado el tiempo, aunque sin apresurarnos en ningún momento. En resumen, nuestras expectativas fueron más que cumplidas pues no solamente fue hacer las visitas sino tener la sensación de estar viajando con una amiga. Recomendamos Exploring Cantabria a todos los que deseen recibir un servicio personalizado a un precio razonable.

Aconsejo hacer la visita guiada ya que te explica curiosidades de la construcción del edificio. Realmente Gaudí fue un genio que aun hoy sigue vigente. Cuando acabas la visita guiada tienes tiempo de disfrutar del edificio a tu aire y darte cuenta de que el nombre El Capricho' le viene al pelo.
