It wasn't easy to reach this place but it worth the driving. Dali is of course an eccentric and fascinating artist so being at the place where he worked with his wife is some great experience. The place itself is fantastic, located in a quite village and close to a beautiful beach. I have been to several places housing his... More

We went in Dali house just before the last tour for the day. the light contributed a lot to the whole atmosphere in the house and the garden. It is a magical place, where one truly can understand from where Dali was getting his inspiration and where he put his heart and soul. The views to the sea is magical.... More

We liked the way small groups were shown round the house at set times so you were not overcrowded in the rooms. This trip gave a fascinating insight into Dali's surroundings. We particularly liked the oval domed room upstairs and his swimming pool! It would have been good to have an English translation of the films shown in the room... More

It was quite intimate and I was lucky that there were not many visitors. It made the Surrealist more real :-)

We visited in October and walked over from Cadaques. The beach and house were really fascinating and we spent a long time there. The guide was informative and helpful. The house was magical and it was if Dali had just walked out. Very atmospheric.

After visiting the Museum-Theatre in Figueres last month, we continued on, over the mountains and through the switchbacks, to Dali’s home on the coast outside the tiny town of Cadaques. Starting with a simple fisherman’s shack, Dali designed and built a private compound that housed him and Gala for many productive years. This is a tightly controlled tourist site. Only... More

After spending some time trying to drive to the Dali House we finally arrived and parked the car. BIG surprise, - only guided tours and we were lucky to join one of the the tours after having waited some time. Best option, - book tickets in advance through their web site. BUT, - what a wonderful experience. The house, grounds... More

The history is incredible, but the views and the artwork are mystical. We loved the entire 2 hours spent on the grounds and in the building.
