Girona & Dali Museum in Figueres
This is an excellent choice for a full day tour outside Barcelona, visiting two fascinating places in Catalunya: Girona & Dali Museum in Figueres.
Our experienced drivers we’ll take us first to Figueres. During the drive, we’ll see the lush inland landscape of northern Catalunya from the highway.
Salvador Dalí designed the Museum himself; it is an old theater, and we think there’s no better place for a museum dedicated to his genius. Inside, you’ll find a car, a treasure room, a ceiling painted like the Sistine Chapel, and many other Dalinian surprises. Dalí himself is buried inside the Museum.
Only half an hour from Figueres, we reach Girona, the second biggest city in Catalonia. The Old City has some of the best-preserved Medieval Jewish streets and alleys, with a fascinating Museum dedicated to the Jewish Heritage in Catalunya. We can visit the Cathedral with one of the widest Gothic nave in the world, and a Tapestry that dates back from the 11th century. If you like just strolling around the nice streets of Girona let us know, and the guide will adapt the tour to whatever suits you better.
Both Figueres and Girona have fantastic restaurants that feature traditional Catalan cuisine so that you can get an authentic taste of the countryside.
If you prefer a Half day tour instead, then we recommend you the tour Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres, skipping the visit to Girona.
