The Dalí Triangle

A route to get to know about the Catalan genius
If we drew a line joining the municipalities of Púbol, Portlligat and Figueres, we would draw a triangle: the Dalí triangle, an area covering some 40 square kilometres. Here you can get to understand the life and work of Salvador Dalí by visiting the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the Gala Dalí Castle in Púbol and the Salvador Dalí House Museum in Portlligat. Start the car and let's set off!

Our suggested tour starts at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. It is in itself considered to be the largest Surrealist object in the world. Built over the remains of the former Figueres theatre, the building contains many master works by Salvador Dalí. After lunch you can head on to Cadaqués and Portlligat, 50 minutes away from Figueres, to discover even more about him, and spend the night.

What was a fisherman's hut in Portlligat is now the Dalí House Museum, his only fixed abode. He established himself there in 1930 and continued to live and work there until 1982. When his wife and muse, Gala, died, he moved to the Castell de Púbol. The building, devised by Dalí and Gala, is a labyrinthine structure distributed around the so-called 'Hall of the Bear'. To visit it, you need to book.
The following day, after a stroll around the picturesque coastal village of Cadaqués, head off to Púbol, the final destination on the route, and an hour-and-a-half's drive away. Here you can visit the Gala Dalí Castle, a medieval building which Dalí gave to Gala. It has been open to the public since 1996 and epitomises the relationship between the two lovers very well. At the end of your visit you can have lunch in one of the nearby restaurants or head off to Girona, half an hour away, instead.
