The Ultimate Dalí Small Group Day Tour from Barcelona

During the summer months, the drive to Cadaques can take a long time due to the number of people wanting to visit the town and beach. For this reason, we substitute the visit to Dalí's house with a visit to the castle at Pubol he gave to his wife.

Winter Schedule 1st September - 30th June

One of the most complete Dalí tours available. Spend the morning at the unique Dalí museum in Figueres and finish the day on his beloved Costa Brava, visiting his home in Port Lligat. 

This tour we offer you is much more than just a Dalí-Museum Tour as we visit places that other tours leave behind.

Summer Schedule 1st July - 31st August

To avoid the crowds in Cadaques during the height of the summer, we substitute the Dalí house in Port Lligat with a visit to Pubol Castle, the magnificent present he gave to his beloved wife.

Full tour description:

We depart from our city centre office opposite the Palau de la Musica monument at 8:30am, and set out for Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre. Here you will be able to explore where he was born on Monturiol Street and visit the museum. 

Those wanting to visit, will find a museum like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work, and for this reason he wanted no catalogues 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. 

Winter Schedule 15th September - 30th June

After our morning visit inside the mind of Dalí, we head for the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués.

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

But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya.   

For lunch, you can enjoy local seafood specialities 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.

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 hut 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.

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

Summer Schedule 1st July - 14th September

Our summer schedule follows the winter schedule for the morning but follows a different itinerary after leaving the museum.

Following your visit here, the tour travels to a beautiful Medieval village on his beloved Costa Brava, where there will be ample opportunities to eat in a traditional Catalan restaurant. 

After lunch, you can visit 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 water colours 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.

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

  • Please note: Dali House will be closed on the 1st of January, and from the 6th of January until the 11th of February. It is still possible to see the house from the outside.
