This is a beautiful coastal town with several Art Nouveau buildings, such as the Capricho de Gaudí, the impressive façade of the local cemetery and the Universidad Pontificia. It was towards the end of the 19th century that this town flourished, as it became the favourite summer retreat for members of the royal family and high society. It was the first place in Spain to have street lighting powered by electricity.
Tips from our postmen and women
What to do and see in Comillas?
“The municipality of Comillas is the last destination in Cantabria on the Northern Way. This town combines architectural heritage with an amazing coastline of beautiful landscapes and nature. Art Nouveau palaces and villas stand side by side with folk mountain architecture that reminds us of rural life.
When you go past Cobreces you can buy some of their famous cheeses, as relevant as the three types having a denomination of origin in the region: Queso Nata de Cantabria, Quesucos de Liébana and Queso Picón Bejes-Tresviso”.
