We depart from Barcelona and head to Figueres, the birthplace of Dali and home to the world famous Dali Museum-Theatre. Here you will be able to explore where he was born on Monturiol Street, just off the popular rambla, and visit the museum Dali himself built around the former theatre where his first exhibition was held. Originally created and built in 1961 it was not officially opened until 1974. Those wanting to visit the museum will find a museum like none other. Dali wanted visitors to see this 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 Dali's world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. This is a complete surrealistic experience. From July 1 to September 15 you will enjoy the following.
During the height of the summer, the road to Cadaques is often heavily congested, so we take you to another of Dali's creations.
The tour travels to the village of Pubol, where there will be ample opportunities to eat in a traditional Catalan restaurant before visiting another masterpiece of Dali's: Pubol Castle.
DalĂ 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 DalĂi 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, Dali received the title of Marquis Dali of Pubol, although Dali only lived in the Castle for 2 years after Gala passed away.
In mid afternoon, your tour will continue to Palamos: one of those rare hidden corners you can still find on the Costa Brava. Dali 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 Dali. 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 DalĂi and no better way to finish the day than to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
We will leave at around 5:00pm and arrive back in Barcelona at around 7:00pm.
