In the late 19th century, King Alfonso XII of Spain not only spent his summers in Comillas, he even made it the capital of Spain for a day. On your visit to this majestic town, take in the iconic Neo-Gothic style Sobrellano Palace and Antoni Gaudí's extraordinary El Capricho villa, one of the few examples of his work outside Catalonia. Travel along the coast and cross the 15th-century Maza Bridge to the nearby fishing village of San Vicente de la Barquera. Explore its medieval buildings or relax with a coffee to absorb its unique atmosphere, seascapes and dramatic mountain backdrop.
