A day with Salvador Dali
Figueres is a small town located 25 km from the French border and capital of the Alt Empordà shire. Its strategic location converted it into an important commercial center in the region, but without a doubt what has made it a famous city is the fact that Salvador Dalí was born there.
It was here that Dalí created his most surrealistic work, the Teatre – Museu Salvador Dalí; in the interior of the town’s old theatre, a museum that presents a part of his work, his life and his mind to bring us a little closer to this artist so well known for his paintings and for his unorthodox personality.
We will visit the Dalí Museum Theatre, where among other works we will see The Naval Carriage, The Hallucinogenic Bullfighter, The Treasure Room, The Mae-West Room. Through them, we will also know a part of his life, closely related to his work at all times.
But the life of Dalí cannot be understood without the presence of Gala, his wife, his muse, his manager… So we will complement the tour with the visit to the castle that Dalí gave to Gala in the center of Empordà. We will pass through a part of this emblematic plain, which offers a typically Mediterranean lanscape, entil we reach the small village of Púbol, a small hamlet where the fortifes country house is located.
