Overview

This is without doubt, one of the most complete Salvador Dalí tours available. Spend the morning at the unique Dalí Museum in Figueres and finish the day either on his beloved Costa Brava, visiting his home in Port Lligat and the magificent Cap de Creus, or at the castle he built for his wife. It’s a complete surrealistic experience. On this small group walking tour, you'll receive personalized attention from your guide. And by booking ahead, you won't waste any time waiting in line!

Depart Barcelona and set out for Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre. Explore where he was born on Monturiol Street and also visit the famous museum. Step inside the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and find a museum like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his 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. Inside is a world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience. The tour itinerary varies:
From September 1 - June 30 (Winter):
Leave Figueres and head to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its white washed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay, this is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya. This is the perfect place for lunch. In the afternoon we will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him and where he built his house. Finally, we will move on to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes in the whole of the country.
From July 1 – August 31 (Summer):
Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.
Please note: Dali House will be closed from the 1st of January to the 4th of January and from the 11th of January until the 11th of February. It is still possible to see the house from the outside.

The drive to Figueres was longer than we expected. Ana our guide was knowledgeable and interesting and entertaining. The museum was extremely busy with tourists being Good Friday but the museum is something to see. Don’t miss visiting the Dalis jewelry museum attached to the main building. Cadaques was a lovely seaside town we walked around and had lunch as well.

Our guide, Enrique, was absolutely fantastic! He was so enthusiastic about everything and made the trip totally worth it! The Dalí museum was amazing and having Enriques information on the way was really what made the experience surreal. Book this, you don't be dissadisappo!

Excellent tour, well thought-though itinerary, very interesting and informative. Our guide Stephen was excellent - very knowledgable and easy-going. Wish we could have more time in the Dali's Theatre-Museum and especially in his Jewellery museum - stunning masterpieces! A bit long drive back to Barcelona (took 3 hours) but it was raining heavily and we got diverted because of the floods. Overall it was a great experience - we might consider taking this tour in summer to visit Pubol Castle as well.

I am a fan of Dali and of Barcelona. I have been to Barcelona many times but never did the Dali triad (museum in Figueres, visit to Cadaques, and then his house). I am glad I did, as it's a lot of ground to cover. Nicolas, our guide, shared the story of Dali's life on the long ride to the museum. Having the background offered a lot of context and I got a lot more out of the museum and his house than I would have on my own. Thank you, Nicolas.

Dali's 'theatre-museum' in Figures - absolutely one of the most incredible places I have experienced! So much more than a gallery.
