Our Spanish Trails day trips from Barcelona to Girona and Dalí museum in Figueres are well-rounded day tour experiences from Barcelona into the heart of the Girona region of Catalonia for a full day of culture, art, history and local cuisine. The walled, Roman and medieval city of Girona (from the 1st century) and neighboring Figueres (home of the Dalí Museum) are about an hour north of Barcelona situated in the beautiful province of Girona, home to charming villages of the eastern Pyrenees and beautiful beaches and villages of the Costa Brava. Dalí & Girona day trips are personalized, guided tours that have proven to be popular excursions for travelers of all ages and interest levels.
The Dalí & Girona day tours begin with a 1.5-2 hour visit to museum of the great surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. The Dalí museum in Figueres is a museum designed by none other than Salvador Dalí himself and houses his works from all stages of his unique life as one of the world’s most accomplished and recognized artists. The Dalí museum experience is not only a must for any art enthusiast but also a unique, unforgettable experience for any inquisitive traveler. As Dalí had intended, exploring the museum is a personal, independent experience, however our guides will give you plenty of insight to understand the artist and the museum before the experience (entrances included)
After leaving Dalí, we move on to Girona where you will first enjoy a great lunch of local, creative cuisine. After our meal we move on to explore Girona’s colorful history and medieval architecture by strolling through the winding old quarter and Jewish Call. Wind the streets through the many amazing houses, churches and gardens as well as a visit to Girona city’s world famous Gothic Cathedral and/or Jewish heritage center of Bonastruc Sa Porta. As former home to Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, Franks and the now an autonomous Catalan state, Girona has stood the test of time via countless attacks by countless armies. The local Catalans who live here have tastefully respected their unique history in carrying out the art, architectural and cultural traditions since its founding nearly 2000 years ago. Dali Girona tours are extremely well-rounded days that hold something unique and memorable for all ages and interests.
