Our guide, Kurt was warm and welcoming. He was enthusiastic about Dalí and all that we saw at the museum and the house. He was very knowledgeable, and with unusual depth and breadth of his subject. Even during the long car ride he was entertaining and informative about Spain in general and of course about Dalí specifically.. His ideas were original and refreshing. The tour was really worth the time spent and we would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in Spanish art and history.

Description

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in a comfortable vehicle and take you through the idyllic landscapes of the Costa Brava. You’ll uncover the mysteries and secrets of the most famous Catalan painter, Salvador Dalí.

From Barcelona, you’ll first head to Figueres. Become familiar with the streets and corners that marked the artist's early years and pass some of his favourite places.

Afterwards, you’ll visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum, designed by Dalí himself. This museum is considered to be the largest surrealist object in the world.

The tour will continue to Púbol, where the Gala Dalí Castle is located. In this medieval building, the artist created a place of refuge for his wife, Gala, equal to his love and admiration for her. The painter himself was not allowed to visit without an invitation from his wife, who lived there until the day of her death.

After admiring this romantic ode to love, you’ll go to the Platja del Castell – a cove that's completely surrounded by pine forests. Nearby, you’ll discover one of Dalí’s most little-known secrets, la barraca de Dalí, a small workshop with lots of special features.

At the end of the day you’ll have the chance to take a dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Costa Brava.

Dali Museum and Pubol Castle Tour
Mariusz Lewy was an excellent guide who gave us a much greater appreciation of Dali's works in both his Museum and Castle. His depth of knowledge on Dali and the area was amazing.
