Description

We depart from Barcelona at 08:30 from outside the Hard Rock 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.

Following your visit here, the tour travels to the village of Pubol, where there will be ample opportunities to eat in a traditional Catalan restaurant.

After lunch you can visit another masterpiece of Dalí's: Pubol Castle. Dalí gave the castle to Gala in the spring of 1970, on the condition that he himself would not enter it unless personally invited by Gala.

He carefully restored the old Gothic Renaissance Palace and furnished it with items bought from various antique dealers around the region. Inside, he painted frescoes and later painted two water colours entitled 'View of Pubol.'

In typical Dalí fashion, he promised his wife that he would only ever visit the castle when she invited him.

But, perhaps most lovingly and saddest of all, he also built the crypt where Gala is now buried deep in the bowels of the castle. At the end of his life, Dalí received the title of Marquis Dalí of Pubol, although Dalí only lived in the Castle for 2 years after Gala passed away.

In mid afternoon your tour will continue to Platge de Castell, one of those rare hidden corners you can still find on the Costa Brava. Dalí visited this region several times in the 1930s, especially a place called Mas Juny, owned by his friend Josep Sert, a famous Catalan painter of the time.

This place was famous for its artistic gatherings and parties, which were attended by Dalí. Even today, the Costa Brava, with its transparent waters and pine forests, is not so different from the 1930s. This rocky coastline has been saved from high buildings and large scale tourism projects and still preserves that 'wild aspect' that gave the name to Costa Brava. There is no better homage to Dalí and no better way to finish the day than to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

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