I didn't know what to expect when I booked my ticket, and I was more than satisfied by this "museum". You get to peek into the personal life of Dali and enjoy his beautiful and unique house.

I have now visited the Dali attractions more than once on trips to Barcelona. These spots really show his mindset as an artist! I have hired a driver from the hotel in Barcelona to travel to this, Gala's home in Pubol and if time, the museum. It is important to book tickets ahead of time as they give you a... More

We first visited Portligat not long after Dali died. On seeing the house with eggs on the roof, we vowed to return one day. It was some many years later that we were able to return, and visit the house which has now been opened as a museum. The house brings alive the artist, his quirkiness and his immense talent.... More

A visit to Port Lligat is a must for anyone who appreciates or wants to better understand Dali. It is also a delightful visit for anyone who enjoys a quaint seaside town away and wants to see a beautiful part of coastal Spain. It is easy to understand why Dali found this place so peaceful and attractive. First you must... More

Realised that we needed to book a timed ticket just become setting off so booked for another day. There appears to be one mountaineous route in and out of the town with wonderful views

I visited this place during a trip to Cadaques with my boyfriend and I absolutely fell in love with the town, the beach and this beautiful house, full of art, of history, life stories, love, modernism, joy, all in the same time. I will definitely go back there as soon as I can! This is one of my favourite places... More

The Dali house is well worth the pleasant 1.5k walk from Cadaques but you need to book and pay a few days in advance. If you just roll up on the day and hope to get in you will be disappointed. The tour of the house is a tight 20 minute conducted affair, but once you get outside you can... More

For anyone interested in Dali's work, a visit to the house-museum at Portlligat is a must. Timed tours have to be booked ahead but is well worth it. Everything is here including his studio with tubes of paint left as he left the house following Gala's death, their separate beds a nod to their allegedly unconsummated relationship and everywhere the...

This was a day trip for us and well worth it. The layout of the museum is just brilliant. Unfortunately, too many people are allowed in at once and some elements of the museum become VERY difficult to enjoy as a consequence. Don't mis the jewellery museum, just beautiful. Despite popularity worth every effort to visit.
