Comillas in Cantabria is an architectural dream in a small Spanish village. It is best known for the legacy left by Gaudi in the Parque del Sobrellano. A modernist approach has seen an arabesque tower, combined with tree shapes and a building representing sunflowers - a great place to admire the art and enjoy a picnic. The Royal Court is Sobrellano Palace, and this was also designed by Gaudi in neo modernist style.
The nearby National Park of Oyambre is unique in having different ecosystems. From coastal to sand dune to marshland, this area has become a haven for rare migratory birds and birds of prey. Walking in this area is good, with several trails. The coastline offers sandy beaches with water sports.
