Stunning visit around Dali's house makes you feel like part of his entourage and close friend. The swans that paddled around in the sea were a feature when I first visited the area in the 1970's -alas they all died but were preserved for all time and inhabit the Dali bookshelf just inside the front door. No photo's in the... More

This house is where Dali and Gala lived for many years. Well worth a visit and the steep 20 minute walk from Cadaques. The visit is guided and the interior I has hardly been changed since Dali left it when Gala died. Unique furnishings and interior and wonderful views from the house. Must book in advance as it gets really... More

We really loved this intimate look into Salvador Dali's life and mind. I booked our visit about a month ahead of time online. Only about 6 people are admitted at a time- so you need to book ahead. Every tour was filled already on our day in late April. We loved the fact that there were so few people after... More

One of the most interesting museums I've seen. You totally need several hours to really get all the impresions, and study his art as much as you can.

First, in spite of our group's poor experience, you should probably do this museum because of it's uniqueness. However, be aware that you must pick up your tickets one half hour before your assigned tour or you forfeit your tour time. In our case, we had scheduled back to back tour because of the size of our group (they only... More

Make sure you book a reservation early, if not try going to the office first thing in the morning when they open and you may be able to get in thru a cancellation. Definitely worth seeing, one can see where he received his inspiration, very informative guide speaks English and French, gardens are beautiful. Then drive to Cap de Creus,... More

Do not skip this! So worth the drive (all the winding roads, yes!)..and then go the extra for Cap de Creus...see where he was inspired...he made sure to encourage us never to forget him!

First make sure you get a reservation online before you go. The visit was awesome to see how he lived and worked in Port Ligat. Tour is about 30-40 minutes in the house, and unlimited time in the gardens. A must for anyone who loves Dali. Remember don't forget the reservstion or they will turn you away! Good travels.

Book at least 4 days ahead of time to ensure you get to see this jewel of Dali's imagination. The bedroom and pool are exquisite. At the top of the hill above the Dali house, on the road back to Cadaquez, is a pearl of a white chapel that should not be missed. See its side yards with its tombs... More

This is a very strange and wonderful place. I have no idea how to describe my visit - the whole house is weird, fantastic and funny and I learned so much in a short time. It was a marvelous experience. We booked our tickets online before leaving the UK-we couldn't have got in if we'd turned up on the day... More
