Full description

We depart from Barcelona at 8:30 am from our office opposite the Palau de la Musica. Our first port of call will be Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre.

The museum is like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work, and for this reason, he wanted no catalogs and refused to have his works placed in chronological or subject order.

Step inside Dalí’s world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience.

After our morning visit inside the mind of Dalí, we head for the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. The dramatic drive over the mountain offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya. 

Famous for its whitewashed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay, this is one of the most picturesque villages on the whole Costa Brava. 

For lunch, you can enjoy local seafood specialties in one of the numerous terraces facing the Mediterranean, or grab a sandwich and simply relax and appreciate why this place inspired so many artists.

From September 16 - June 30 (Winter Schedule):

After lunch, we will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him.  When the artist met the love of his life, Gala, he broke away from his parents and bought a fishermen’s out there. It was here that Dalí lived from 1930 onwards, gradually altering and enlarging the original dwelling he bought there and which shared the same name as the bay. 

The house of Port Lligat must be considered Dalí’s only true home. It was in this studio that he painted the majority of his great works. Every detail of the house bears his imprint, and the house still contains his original furniture and decoration.

Finally, we will move on to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes in the whole of the country.

We will leave at around 5:00 pm and arrive back in Barcelona at around 7:00 pm. 

From July 1 – 31st August  (Summer Schedule)

During the height of the summer, the road to Cadaqués is often heavily congested, so we take you to another of Dalí’s creations.

The tour travels to the village of Púbol, where there will be ample opportunities to eat in a traditional Catalan restaurant before visiting another masterpiece of Dalí’s: Pubol Castle.

Dalí gave the castle to Gala in the spring of 1970, on the condition that he himself would not enter it unless personally invited by Gala. He carefully restored the old Gothic Renaissance Palace and furnished it with items bought from various antique dealers around the region.

Inside, he painted frescoes and later painted two watercolors entitled ‘View of Pubol’. In typical Dalí fashion, he promised his wife that he would only ever visit the castle when she invited him!

But, perhaps most lovingly and saddest of all, he also built the crypt where Gala is now buried deep in the bowels of the castle. At the end of his life, Dalí received the title of Marquis Dalí of Pubol, although Dalí only lived in the Castle for 2 years after Gala passed away.

In the mid-afternoon, your tour will continue to one of the small coastal villages that dot the coast of the Costa Brava. Dalí visited this region several times in the 1930s to spend time with his friends and to attend some of the many gatherings and parties that were held in the area at that time.

Even today, the Costa Brava, with its transparent waters and pine forests, is not so different from the 1930s. This rocky coastline has been saved from high buildings and large-scale tourism projects and still preserves that ‘wild aspect’ that gave the name to Costa Brava. There is no better homage to Dalí and no better way to finish the day than to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

We will leave at around 5:00 pm and arrive back in Barcelona at around 7:00 pm.

Fascinating experience
We had a great day with our very knowledgeable guide Cam. We went on a comfortable large bus. We stopped firstly at the Dali museum which was fantastic. The road to Cadaques is quite picturesque. Then we went to the Costa Brava where we could take a dip or enjoy a drink beachside. one of the best trips ever!!!
