Comillas - El Capricho de Gaudi

This was our favourite building in Comillas, a summer home designed when Gaudi was just 31. Although his buildings definitely got weirder and wackier the older he got, this one had a few of his trademark touches – it has a bit of a fairy-tale/Hansel and Gretel look to it, covered with lots of colourful ceramics, and featuring unconventional shapes and curves, and innovative design feature.
