We will depart from Santander towards Comillas at 9:30. The village of Comillas is surprisingly a cradle and model of the Catalonia modernism. With its scant 18.6 square kilometers of western Cantabria Comillas encompasses all of the elements necessary to satisfy any tourist and lover of modernist architecture.

We will visit there the Major Seminary (previously known as Comillas University), a majestic building done by Lluís Domenech i Montaner and with different architectural influences. The Seminar is built on a hill where you can enjoy beautiful views from Comillas, particularly of its Sobrellano Palace.

After this visit, we will have the opportunity to assist to an English guided visit of the "Capricho de Gaudí", which is a mansion built by the famous Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí. It is, in fact, one of the few constructions of Gaudí out of Catalonia. 

Before leaving, we will make a quick visit with the vehicle through the town to see the magnificent sculpture in the “Ángel Exterminador” on the ruins of an old monastery and the "Fuentes Pila" fountain.
