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.

Take a peek inside the artist's mind inside of his home...this was a truly unforgettable experience. Dali was a wonderful interesting artist and his home is nothing short of a work of art. It is not easy to get to, you will take a train from Barcelona, about an hour long, then it is about another hour to the house... More

Really worth visiting Dali's house. To say that he lived there 25 years ago is really exciting. Highly recommend.

Standing on a beautiful and tranquil bay, how Salvador Dali must have loved the many years he spent in this, his Catalonia home. It was most exciting to visit his house which stands as a testament to his unique and eccentric personality. To see where he lived, ate, slept and of course worked was a treat and his views of...

I was recently asked by a friend, the place to celebrate a wedding anniversary. My immediate response was Port Lligat,as for me this is a romantic and magical place. We often take our friends, who are visiting us here in Gruissan. In August we were lucky enough to be able to visit the Dali Museum in Figueres during the evening.... More

The Olive Garden is full of curiosities and interest around every corner, with some beautiful views out over the bay. Quirky art works adorn each discrete area and intrigue and playfulness predominate. Sculptural egg shapes, a pastiche of the Alhambra and a prone Gulliver figure are just some of the features here. Admission is well worth the cost regardless of... More
