From the Capricho de Gaudi to the Palacio de Sobrellanos to round out your architectural afternoon, have a slow walk to the Cementerio gates. The iron work is interesting even if the cemetery is closed. The views just a bit further are fabulous! A gem!

Quite an atmospheric place. We visited on a fairly cold blustery day and it felt a bit like an episode from a gothic film.

A weird but very interesting place. Cemetery actually built within a former church. Should be a highlight for goth-inclined or dark tourists

As graveyards go, this is one of the more interesting. It is set high up with some nice views. Some of the magnificent tombs and grave monuments have to be seen to be believed. Car parking is limited but there is parking further along the...More

We visited this cemetery as our car was parked nearby but to be honest it would have been worth the walk from the town centre anyway. A quiet, serene place which offers fantastic views of Comillas and far beyond.

We saw the huge, almost Gothic guardian Angel whilst driving back to Santillana Del Mar. It was a very wet and dreary day .. And seeing this huge edifice in the distance was quite unnerving. It looked like it should be in a horror film!...More
