Make sure you get tickets on line as they only accept 12 people at a time in the house. They are also very strict with the time. If you miss your time on your ticket you are out of luck! It is so interesting and beautiful. It was one of the highlights on my trip to Spain.

Visited Dali's house after a visit of the museum. After visiting the museum, which was awesome, i just expected more from the house. Yes... it is worth visiting, but really no Dali art in the home. The home was very basic, but I imagine for the time, it was considered a mansion.

This gives a great insight into the life of Dali. Advanced bookings (~ 24 hours at least) are required as only 8 people enter the house every 10 minutes.

We enjoyed this peek into Dali's eccentric and highly creative lifestyle. It is worth a visit to see this house which he left untouched after the death of his wife. Be sure to book your tickets ahead of time and arrive at the specified time - a half hour before the booked viewing time. We arrived 10 minutes prior to... More

Well worth the visit. Must pre-book otherwise u will be disappointed. The walk to the house is easy, a few hills though. It's really interesting - the exterior and the interior. The guide was very informative about Dali's life and work.

set in a pretty fishing village with stunning views, simple and unspoilt place. Car park was very good value (3 euros for the day) and the restaurant by the car park is excellent, reasonably priced and good quality food

I was trully charmed by this small museum which is nothing more than the former home and grounds of a place where Salvador Dali spent much of his life. The home is trully eccentric and full of surprises, but the real star is the views from the outside. Truly stunning ocean views from the hills above the house. Easy to... More

Dali's home in Port Lligat (near Cadaques) offers an insight, not just into Dali, but how one can live creatively every day. Touring the house one can easily imagine living in it, enjoying the comfort, the whimsey and all the beautiful objects and ideas that formed a part of Dali and Gala's lives.

If you are a fan of Dali then this museum is a must. The view into the life of Dali !!! You need to book in advance because only a limited amount of people are allowed inside. It's quirky, fun and intriguing. And educational. I absolutely loved this! If the weather is nice it is lovely just to walk up... More

This museum gives an insight into Dali's everyday life at Port Lligat and each room testifies to his unique lifestyle and artistic stances. Be warned: the number of visitors is strictly restricted so you must book before turning up.
