What to expect

Immerse yourself in the complete life of Salvador Dalí, visiting the artists' museum in Figueres to his studio and home in Port Lligat. Personalize your experience with upgraded private tour tickets, or chose to join a group of no more than 16 people.

In Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world-famous Dalí Museum-Theatre, you will explore where the artist was born on Monturiol Street and visit the museum. Step inside Dalí’s world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures for a complete surrealistic experience.

Winter Schedule 15 September to 30 June:

After a morning spent inside the mind of Dalí, you'll head for the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its whitewashed Mediterranean houses and narrow shady streets this is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava.

Enjoy a lunch of local seafood specialties on a terrace facing the Mediterranean, or grab a sandwich and relax and ponder why this place inspired so many artists.

Next travel up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí lived from 1930 onwards, gradually altering and enlarging the original dwelling he bought there and which shared the same name as the bay. It was in this studio that he painted the majority of his great works.

Finally, continue to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes in the country.

Summer Schedule 1 July to 14th September:

Following the winter morning itinerary, the visit to Dalí's house is substituted with a visit to the Castle of Púbol, which Dalí gave to his wife as a gift.

Travel to the village of Púbol, where you can eat a traditional Catalan lunch then visit another masterpiece of Dalí’s: Púbol Castle. Dalí gave the castle to his wife Gala in the spring of 1970, on the condition that he could not enter unless having been personally invited by her.

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 watercolors entitled View of Púbol.

In the afternoon your tour will continue to Platge de Castell, where Dalí frequently visited his friend and famous Catalan painter Josep Sert at Mas Juny.
