All Dalí: Dalí Museum & Púbol Castle
The Dalí Museum and the Castle of Púbol are both situated north of Barcelona, in the Empordà region where he was born and which inspired many of his works. We will dive into the depths of the subconscious and surrealist world of the artist.
The Castle in Púbol dates back to the 14th Century and was Dalí’s gift to his wife Gala, his muse since they met in Cadaqués in 1929. Dalí remodeled an ancient medieval castle for her and decorated it with his works. The result is a mysterious, private place with decorations and objects designed by the great artist. It has been open to visitors since 1996. Gala was buried in it in 1982.
We’ll then drive to Figueres to visit the great Dalí Theatre-Museum, which opened in 1974, and is considered to be the artist’s biggest creation, with both the interior and the exterior of the building displaying Dalí’s great works of art. It’s quite a big museum, and we’ll make the most of our visit by concentrating on some of the most interesting art pieces that Dalí himself chose to be displayed in the museum, some of which were made by him and others of which were made by other artists following his instructions.
We´ll have lunch in Figueres or at some quaint village between Púbol and Figures.

More Day trips and Excursions from Barcelona
I was in Barcelona for two weeks with two different groups. I booked Skip the Line at the last minute just hoping for some generic info and no standing in line. What we got instead was two very good guides, great information, very professional, and a tour that far exceeded my expectations! This is a small company and now I know two of the three employees! I highly recommend it!
I got quick responses to my questions via email, it was easy to pay in advance and they chose a very easy meeting place– especially since we were coming by Metro. Would definitely use it again!
Albert was great. He was informative and flexible helping us make the most of our tour. I highly recommend getting a private tour of this site. Without it, we would have missed so much. Thank you!
Carolina set the bar high for the tour experience. She speaks excellent English, knows the history of Barcelona, organizes the tour to maximize results and is a very pleasant person.
