Having been here before I was looking forward to seeing it again and sharing the experience with my partner... Oh how wrong I was... We were told that we could only stay for a hour, the security guard insisted that we would walk around the house in her preferred route and the garden door was slammed shut the second we entered the terrace and to top things off the gift shop was closed so no souvener teatowel for me and certainly no thimble for mother.

Shocker

Beautiful home but experience was spoiled by rude staff and rules that meant you couldn’t enjoy the tour. I would not go back and wouldn’t recommend.

Worth a visit but there's a limited amount to see and not particularly informative. However I enjoyed our brief visit and the castle is attractive.

Dali-Gala Castle Museum is a Middle Ages Castle bought by Salvador Dalí and located in Púbol, a little town near Girona, in the North of Catalonia. It was a present for his couple, Gala, who lived here the last years of her life. After, Dalí come here to paint and it was his atelier until his death in 80's. In fact some of the artworks, you can see in the castle, were painted or designed by Dalí and it is really very nice. You can see almost all castle and gardens, so it is very interesting if you are Dalí or surrealist-lover. The third building of Dalí after Museum in Figueres and his house in Portlligat.

The blasons (shields) salon was impressive, but the whole house is really unique!
He even painted her kitchen dishes! Amazing...
The fact that the whole house (or almost) is wheelchair accessible, made the visit even more pleasant.
Very recommended!

The last piece of the jigsaw for us, and although a small castle, the setting is picture postcard perfect and the house contains Dali memorabilia unique to the location.
Not as busy as other Dali former homes, so was able to really take our time and enjoy both the castle and the village. Both are well worth a visit.

This small castle is beautiful and funny at the same time. It is full of Salvador Dalí (and his wife Gala) memorabilia. The surroundings are beautiful.

My husband and I were wondering for a while if we need to buy tickets to this place in advance (online). We didn’t know the exact time we would arrive so we didn’t book anything. At the end, it was really not necessary. We came to Púbol at 11 AM in November. The castle had only a few visitors. It was quiet and nice. I wouldn’t call it a castle exactly. It’s more like a big mansion with a nice garden. In the garden you will find some Dali’s statues (favorite were, of course, the elephants). The place where the museum is located is a tiny village with nothing going on. We did enjoy it though and spend a wonderful hour there. I recommend to visit it if you are planning to go to Figueres on the same day (which we did). Beautiful peaceful place and fair price to enter.

At this site, Dali´s wife Gala lived. It is off course marked by the eccentricity of Dali. It is the least interesting part of the Dali triangle.

We were hoping to see the inside of a castle, visit a garden, and learn about Salvador Dali during our time here, we were able to do all of this at the Gala Dali castle. It was lovely to learn about their romance and see the inside. It is a bit small but only 20 minutes from where we are staying and such a nice mixture of history, art, romance, beauty and a neat garden. We enjoyed it.
