Cadaqués & Dali’s House
If you ask most locals to name the most beautiful village in the Costa Brava, chances are that they will say Cadaqués. Set in a sheltered bay on the southern side of the Cape of Creus peninsula, this delightful small town of whitewashed houses became a popular retreat for writers and artists alike, among them Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Federico García Lorca, René Magritte, and Salvador Dalí, who famously declared Cadaqués the most beautiful village in the world.
In this tour we will enjoy the views and culture of this charming town followed by a visit in the surreal and unique house of Dali in the bay of Portlligat, right next to Cadaqués. The house is made up of a maze of several fishermen’s huts that Dali and his wife Gala bought over their lifetime. Through the light and landscape of the area we will understand why this place became the artist refuge, workshop, and socializing spot. Both Dali and Gala lived here during the spring and summer months since 1930. We will see his studio, library, bedroom, and the extraordinary pool and gardens, where he would invite well renowned guests.
This tour can also be combined with a visit to Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres or the Gala-Dali Pubol Castle. Feel free to ask for any information, we are happy to help and adjust to your needs and interests.
