Salvador Dalí and Costa Brava have a special relationship, and it is impossible to understand the work of this famous artist without taking this Mediterranean area into account. In this article we will explain Dalí’s connection with the Costa Brava and recommend some places to visit if you are interested in this artist.
The Dalí House-Museum in Portlligat
This is the house where the artist lived for 52 years. It is a very special place, as it is where Dalí was inspired and where he carried out his works. Everything is preserved as it was when the artist lived there, and you can visit the interior of the house and its garden. It is a very special place, and it is a home very different from the rest, and Dalí himself decorated his house with the art that characterised him. You can purchase tickets here.
The Dalí Theatre-Museum, in Figueres
This museum was designed by Salvador Dalí in Figueres, the place where the artist was born and died, and is inside the Municipal Theatre. Here you can see works such as Leda atómica or the Portrait of Pablo Picasso in the 21st century, although the most striking thing is to see the installations themselves, which are full of details and surprises.
Gala Dalí Castle, in Púbol
If you also make this visit, you will have completed the well-known Dalí Triangle. This medieval castle is the mausoleum of Gala, his wife, and was also the last workshop of Dalí, who lived here for two years after her death.
