Description

We depart from Barcelona at 08:30 am and set out for Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre. Here you will be able to explore where he was born on Monturiol Street and visit the museum.

You will find a museum like none other. Dalí 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 Dalí's world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. It's a complete surrealistic experience.

After our morning visit inside the mind of Dalí, we head for the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués.

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.

But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya.

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 Dalí 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's hut there.

It was here that Dalí lived from 1930 onwards, 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 Dalí's only true home. It was in this studio that he painted the majority of his great works. Every detail of the house bears his imprint, and the house still contains his original furniture and decoration.

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 in the whole of the country.

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

It was an awesome tour with a small group. The museum was awesome and the drive to dali's beach house was beautiful . Please be warned that there is a lot of walking on steep cobbles.

We had Lydia as guide, it was a fairly long journey to the museum but it passed quickly thanks to Lydia. When we arrived the queu...e wasn't big but we bypassed it anyway, which was good. Lydia has a very good knowledge of Dali and gave a good introduction. The museum was fabulous. The trip to Port Ligat was well very enjoyable and the visit to Dali's house at Cadaques is a must. If you have time have a look at the church at Cadaques. I think we were very lucky to have Lydia as guide. Her English is impeccable and the most important thing, she is a very good driver and we all felt very comfortable throughout the whole journey. Thankyou very much, Lydia! more
