This is arguably one of the most comprehensive Salvador Dalí tours available. Spend the morning at the unique Dali Museum in Figueres and end the day either at his beloved Costa Brava, visiting his home in Port Lligat and the magificent Cap de Creus, or at the castle he built for his wife . It's a complete surreal experience. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 15 for this small-group walking tour, your guide will receive you with personalized attention. And by booking in advance, you don't waste time waiting in line!



Departure from Barcelona and direction Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí which houses the famous Dali-Theatre museum. Discover the place of his birth in Monturiol Street and also visit the famous museum. Step into the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and find an exceptional museum that you won't find anywhere else. Dalí wanted visitors to be able to see his massive collection of "set" work, and it was for this reason that he did not want catalogs and refused to have his works placed in the chronological order or by subject. The interior is a world of fantasy mixed with a mixed architecture of paintings and sculptures. It's a complete surreal experience. Routes vary:

From September 16 – June 30 (winter):
Leave Figueres and head to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its whitewashed Mediterranean houses, its narrow, shady streets, and its sandy bay. It is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. But what really stands out for many people is that it offers some of the best views in all of Catalonia. This is the perfect place for lunch. In the afternoon you will travel for a few minutes along the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí sought the peace and tranquility that truly inspired him and where he built his house. Finally you go again to Cap de Creus, the easternmost point of mainland Spain and one of the most distinctly beautiful coastal landscapes in the whole country.



From July 1 – September 15 (summer):
Go to another of Dalí's creations, the Castle of Púbol in the village of the same name. Apart from visiting the castle, there are many opportunities to eat in a traditional Catalan restaurant. In the middle of the afternoon, the tour continues to Palamos: one of those rare hidden corners you can still find on the Costa Brava. Dalí visited this area several times in the 1930s, in particular a place called Mas Juny, owned by his friend Josep Sert, a famous Catalan painter of the time.
