SALVADOR DALÍ MUSEUM & CADAQUÉS

Spend the morning at the unique Dali museum in Figueres and finish the day on his beloved Costa Brava, visiting his home in Port Lligat and the magnificent Cap de Creus.

This tour offers you much more than just a Dali-Museum Tour as we will visit places that other tours leave behind.

To avoid the crowds in Cadaques during the height of the summer, we will substitute the Dali house in Port Lligat with a visit to Pubol Castle, the magnificent present Dali gave to his beloved wife.

Only in English.

Itinerary:

 

We will departure from Barcelona and set out for Figueres, the birthplace of Dali and home of the world famous Dali Museum-Theatre. Here you will be able to explore where he was born on Monturiol Street and visit the museum.

Those who want to visit the museum will find one like none other. Dali wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a whole work, and for this reason he wanted no catalogues and refused to have his works placed in chronological or subject order. Step inside his world of fantasy mixed with architecture, paintings and sculptures. It is a complete surrealistic experience.

 

After our morning visit inside the mind of Dali, we will head for the beautiful coastal village of Cadaques.

Famous for its white washed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay. This is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava.

For lunch, you can enjoy local seafood specialities in one of the numerous terraces facing the Mediterranean, or grab a sandwich and simply relax and appreciate why this place inspired so many artists.

After lunch we will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dali sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him.

When the artist met the love of his life, Gala, he broke away from his parents and bought a fishermen hut there.

Dali lived from 1930 onwards in Port Lligat, gradually altering and enlarging the original dwelling he bought there and which shared the same name as the bay.

The house of Port Lligat must be considered his only true home. That was the place where he painted the majority of his great works.

Finally, we will move on to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes.

We will leave at around 17:00hours and arrive back in Barcelona at around 19:00hours.
