SURREAL CADAQUÉS & ALL THINGS DALÍ DAY TRIPS
A journey into the life of Dalí one of the world’s greatest and most peculiar artists.
Our Spanish Trails “All Things Dalí” day tours are full day experiences from Barcelona to the northern border of Catalunya where Dalí was born, raised and lived and the landscape, culture and politics which helped shape and inspire his world renown art, life and lifestyle. While the day’s itinerary is essentially based around the quintessential visits to the Dalí House Museum in Port Lligat (Costa Brava) and Dalí Museum in Figueres, there is a lot to do and see in between throughout the day’s journey. You get to spend the day in the heart of the Catalan countryside and Costa Brava getting a true feel for the Catalan Mediterranean culture, architecture, traditions and world-class cuisine.
Dalí’s museums with a great lunch and visit to Cadaqués on the Costa Brava.
Your Spanish Trails All Things Dalí day tour is guided by one of our experienced, entertaining and very enthusiastic Dalí loving guides. They’ll have your entrances and full lunch organized well ahead of time and keep the day moving along so that you get time in both museums, a great four-course restaurant meal and time to stroll around the beautiful Mediterranean beach front village of Cadaqués. The visit to the Dalí house museum in Port Lligat is a one-hour guided visit through Dalí’s main residence with a maximum group size of eight persons. The house is a veritable labyrinth shifting through narrow corridors and passageways into the rooms and workshop where Dalí and his wife Gala lived and which are still in the original decoration from when they resided there. The Dali Teatre Museu in Figueres was designed and built by Dalí himself and showcases some of his great masterpiece paintings as well as some of his sculptures, furniture and jewelry that he designed. The chance to visit Cadaques is in itself worth the trip north. Cadaqués, with its white washed houses, winding cobbled streets, galleries and shops, has been the home of many artists, including Pablo Picasso (1910) and is still an artist colony today. Cadaqués’ unique and somewhat tricky location, surrounded by literally miles of stone wall terracing is an incredible thing in itself and will surely be a highlight of the day along with the Dali museums.
