A very different kind of cemetery

Although visiting a cemetery might seem strange, this isn’t your average graveyard. It’s located in the highest part of the town of Comillas and offers one of the best panoramas of the entire coastline.

Inside, there’s a parochial church dating back to the 15th century and numerous Gothic ruins. What strikes your attention most of all is the statue of the Angel of Death (by the sculptor Llimona Bruguera) looking out over the Cantabrian sea.

Another highlight is the Modernist facade which was declared to be a Monument of Cultural Interest in 1983.

Cemetery of comillas

When I saw this cemetery for the first time, I loved it. It was just…different. Not only because it looks out over the sea but also because it gave the sensation of being in ruins but at the same time beautiful.

Later, I found out that it had once been a church that was abandoned. After being abandoned, it was converted into a cemetery. After a few centuries, it had to be expanded, a project which was led by Lluís Domènech i Montaner in 1893. The sculptor Josep Llimona created the Angel of Death statue (dated between 1894 and 1895) which stands over the ruins of the old church.

Cemetery of comillas

This spectacular cemetery is in the middle of the city. It was the old church and has now been converted into the town cemetery. A white angel, the angel of death, presides over the place and seems to ensure the soul of all living and dead, watching over everything and everyone there. It is the work of Josep Llimona. Inside the place, the Piélagos family mausoleum is the highlight.

Essential

A must visit in Comillas this small modernist cemetery is located on top of the hill, just steps from the beach. It is easily recognized by the white angel crowning the cemetery by Josep Llimona, an artist who also ide the mausoleum of the Pilago family, another place with more art of this curious cemetery created by the architect Catalan Lluis Domènech and Montaner the late nineteenth century, in 1893. Domènech cre this cemetery on the ruins of the ancient village church gtica, which can distinguish an some of its walls and arches. A cemetery may seem one ttrico and unattractive place to visit, but this de Comillas I did not lose both its fabulous sculptures, like so cozy enclosure.

Imprescindible

Una visita imprescindible en Comillas es este pequeño cementerio modernista situado en lo alto de la colina, a un paso de la playa.

Se reconoce fácilmente por el ángel blanco que corona el campo santo, obra de Josep Llimona, artista que también ideó el mausoleo de la familia Piélago, otro de los lugares con más arte de este curioso cementerio creado por el arquitecto catalán Lluis Doménech y Montaner a finales del siglo XIX, en 1893.

Doménech creó este cementerio sobre las ruinas de la antigua iglesia gótica del pueblo, de la que aún se pueden distinguir algunas de sus paredes y arcos.

Un cementerio puede parecernos un lugar tétrico y poco atractivo de visitar, pero este de Comillas no me lo perdería, tanto por sus fabulosas esculturas, como por lo coqueto del recinto.

The exterminating angel

Every year I travel to this curious place to bring flowers to our dead, I know it is a cemetery but it has charm. Its walls are collapsed and has some very old graves and striking. I think it's a must if you pass Comillas.

El ángel exterminador

Todos los años viajo a este curioso lugar a llevar flores a nuestros difuntos, ya se que es un cementerio pero tiene encanto. Sus muros están algo derrumbados y tiene tumbas muy antigúas y llamativas. Creo que es una visita obligada si se pasa por Comillas.

Guardian angels

It's a small place of those that have charm and this mystery also be a cemetery. Also when I blew a lot of wind, as if enraged souls who dwell there. What is most striking are two angels work of Josep Limona. The fossil and before entering was commissioned by the Marques de Comillas to the mausoleum of his son but did not become to such a fate, but is said to set him free, donating it to the people, thus ensuring the soul of the deceased.

Ángeles guardianes

Es un pequeño lugar de esos que tienen encanto y este también misterio por tratarse de un cementerio. Además cuando fui soplaba muchísimo viento, como si las almas que allí habitaran enfurecieran.

Lo que más llama la atención son dos ángeles obra de Josep Limona. El que vemos ya antes de entrar fue un encargo del Marques de Comillas para el mausoleo de su hijo pero que no llegó a ser para tal destino, sino que, se dice, que lo dejó libre, donándolo al pueblo, velando así por el alma de los fallecidos.

The first time we docked in this wonderful Villa, the most romantic reason to photograph struck me as the Angel, for 6 or 7 years and each year that is a must for my camera.

Comillas, un lugar para dejar parte de tí...

La primera vez que recalamos en esta maravillosa Villa, el motivo más romántico para fotografiar se me antojó el Ángel, hace 6 o 7 años de aquello y cada año es parada obligatoria para mi cámara.

Mausoleum temple

The cemetery was once a church and after church. Abandoned for these purposes became a cemetery. Its location makes it visible height from almost all the people. And what stands the cemetery is the figure of the Angel Exterminator, Josep Limona statue that welcomes the place. Very pretty.

De templo a mausoleo

El cementerio fué antaño una iglesia y después templo. Abandonado para estos menesteres pasó a ser camposanto. Su ubicación en altura lo hace visible desde casi todo el pueblo. Y lo que más destaca del cementerio es la figura del Angel Exterminador, la estatua de Josep Limona que da la bienvenida al lugar.
Muy bonito.

It is a historic cemetery in the town of Comillas. You can see a few minutes of contrasts and play lights repeated throughout the day, as well as the beauty of a sunset. In addition, it is fascinating to hear the sound of the sea and watch the beautiful contours of the historic cemetery, surrounded by beautiful scenery

Il s’agit d’un cimetière historique de la ville de Comillas. Vous pouvez admirer les quelques minutes de contrastes et de jeu de lumières répétés pendant toute la journée, ainsi que la beauté d’un coucher du soleil. En plus, c’est fascinant d’entendre la bruit de la mer et de regarder les beaux contours du cimetière historique, entouré par de beau paysage
