It's interesting but might not be worth the trip from Barcelona. The sorrounding gardens are at least as nice and interesting as the house itself and can be visited on their own for a smaller price and without the need for an advance reservation. Only two original works remain inside the house. Beware of the lady at the ticket booth.... More

This was quite a disappointment. Typical tourist attraction and pushed through the house like a sausage machine. Our guide was fluent in French, English and Spanish, but that meant everything was repeated 3 times. There is none of his original art, but this gives you a sneak view into the private life of Dali. Quirky and interesting, but little to... More

We were looking for a day trip from Barcelona and my husband really likes Dali....we even have one of his pieces at home. So, we took the AVE train from Barcelona and did the Dali Museum and then the Dali House. If you are doing this from Barcelona and want to do it all in one day as we did,... More

It was one of my dreams to visit Dali Museum-House. It was a day tour for some people but for it was a day dream. I like surrealism very much and specially Dali`s work. It was just great to be there!!!

Each place I return to Dali's house it makes me laugh. Well worth a visit even for a second or third time.

We were extremely fortunate to buy tickets with only a 15 min wait but I would suggest purchasing in advance and get there in good time or you will miss your slot. The tour is escorted and timed but you can spend as long as you like in the gardens. A simple house but full of eccentric items which could... More

First of all, I love art so a site like this is something I am going to enjoy. It was a rare experience to see the hone of an artist virtually as if he had walked out and left his home as is. He is such an interesting character I couldn't help but be intrigued. Read up on him a... More

If you want to understand Dali you must go to his house in Portligat. Feel how he lived and made some of his paintings like a normal person. See how was is daily living and all the eccentricities of his life. You must go and see also Gala's Castle and the Museum at Cadaques to complete the Triangle of Dali

What struck me most about Dali's home was the simplicity of the design and timeless, clean lines. This was the highlight of my visit to Cadques.

If you are a follower of the great Dali then this is a must. It is an eye opener to see how he lived and created this house. His studio is as it was when he walked out after Gala's death. If you have ever seen the Dali master paintings then the studio where they were painted will give you... More
