Worth the drive to see the house. If I did it again I'd stay the night in Cadaques. The location of the house is stunning with fantastic views of the beautiful bay. The house is interesting as the personality of the couple come out here. It is also great to see the studio where Dali worked for so many years.... More

I love the art work of Salvador Dali. Looking at contemporary photographs of Dali and Gala they seemed very affluent. I don't know if this was the case though. If you have half an interest in the life and work of this iconic Spanish artist you must visit Portlligat which he lived in from 1930 with Gala. The location is... More

My students had never really gotten Into Dali but now are just in love with his bizarre works if art with hidden messages. The jewelry building just breathtaking. I highly recommend the journey.

The Dali Museum-House is totaly different to the Dali-Museum in Figueres. In Cadaques you will see the scetches from Dali, he has drawn before creating his famous pictures. Very interesting to see!

You must book ahead. System works well with phone call or "on line" An excellent view of Dali's life and work. See the videos which are in the garden area.

We felt so lucky to get in because usually reservations are made on line beforehand. And the mornings were full with school tours. Our hostess told us sometimes people don't make their booking and we might get in. Allow a lot of time to find it! An unbelievable chance to view how Dali lived and created 80%,of his work. Such...

Visited the museum recently on a touring trip of Northern Spain. Was pleasantly surprised by the house and grounds. It is very unique and reflects the style and character of Dali. The exhibits are amazing and well worth a visit.

You really have an impression that he is around you. Phenomenal atmosphere, created by the genius. The collection of jewelry is incredible. You can see the works of Dali in the book or on the poster, but if you want to understand Dali you need to see this place.

Visting the Dali Museum-House lends a whole new dimension to this gifted and eccentric genius. We arrived on a weekday morning in the shoulder season without a reservation and only had to wait a short while to enter on a small group tour. However, if traveling during any kind of high volume season, it is a MUST to secure an... More
