Dalí, a must

“Don’t miss Dalí”

Tell me the time you’ve got and I’ll tell you what we can do. Salvador Dalí was born in Figueres in 1904. He did his first exhibition at the age of 14 in Figueres Theatre, building he bought, restored and turned into his own museum in 1974. Cadaqués, his childhood summer home is a cosy fishing town visited by lots of artists all along the XX century where you can breathe an authentic artistic atmosphere. In the thirties he bought different fishing huts in a neighbour cove called Port Lligat and build his surrealistic home. Cadaqués and Port Lligat are in Cape Creus, a lovely rocky cape modelled by the Tramontana wind and the sea waves, where Dalí use to walk very often to get inspired by. In the sixties, he bought a castle to his wife Gala in Púbol, where she use to spend some weeks every summer.

As you can see, there’s lot to do and visit. Shall we start?
