Dali’s Museum in Figueres
Dali’s Museum in Figueres is a tour that takes us to Salvador Dali’s hometown, Figueres, at 120 km from Barcelona and inland of the Costa Brava, the stunning coastal landscape that he kept on painting again and again.
The Museum is open since 1974 after an extensive remodeling and refurbishment of a former abandoned theatre.
At the Museum you’ll discover that all the works, paintings and objects displayed in its interior were chosen by Dali, to offer future visitors an unforgettable and surrealist experience. But not only the inside is his creation, on the outside squares, surrounding the museum we have some unique sets of sculptures designed by him. The peculiar transparent rectangular-shape dome that crowns the building has become an icon and emblem for the city of Figueres. Dali lived his last years on Torre Galatea, a round structure just next to the Museum. And he’s buried here too, you can see his grave from two different places inside the Museum.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world visit it every year, having an expert guide assures you to fully enjoy this magical place. Our guides will lead you through the museum making sure you see Abraham’s Licon face, the setup furniture that becomes Mae West’s face if you look at it through a lens, the “Palau del vent” a room with Dali’s version of the Sixtine Chapel and much more.
It is quite a big museum, so do not worry if we skip a few minor works. Of course, visiting the Museum with a licensed guide means that we have Priority access.
Before leaving we’ll have some time for a snack in Figueres.
