What You Can Expect

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Visit the beautiful Cadaques

Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned minivan and set off on your day trip. As you travel, listen as your guide shares tales of Salvador Dalí’s life, and gaze out over the passing countryside and villages.

After a while, arrive in Figueres, Dalí’s birthplace and home to his famous Dalí Theatre-Museum. See the house where Dalí was born in 1904, and then continue to the museum. Home to a vast range of Dalí’s creations, it offers a unique insight into his works and artistic vision.

Marvel at the exterior with its giant, rooftop egg sculptures, and use your included ticket to skip any admission lines and head straight inside. Enjoy time to explore at leisure, and view everything from Dalí’s early experiments with cubism to later surrealist works such as the Galatea of the Spheres, and the famed Mae West Room installation.

Having explored here, reconvene with your guide and continue your tour as shown below depending on the time of year. For more details, see the Itinerary section.

Winter: Cadaqués and Port Lligat (September 1 - June 30):
Depart Figueres and make the scenic drive to Cadaqués. Admire this pretty seaside Costa Brava village, and get free time for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant. Next, travel to Port Lligat, a coastal village where Dalí built a private retreat, now converted into a museum. Head inside (own expense) to explore, and after a panoramic drive around the spectacular Cap de Creus, finish your tour in central Barcelona.


Summer: Pubol Castle and Palamos (July 1 – August 31): 

Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to the attractive seafront town of Palamos. Admire the castle-like house of muralist Josep Maria Sert, a friend of Dalí, where Dalí visited during the 1930s, and then return to Barcelona, where your trip ends.

Please note: The Salvador Dalí House in Port Lligat is closed between January 1 and January 4, and January 11 to February 11. On these dates, guests will see only the exterior of the house.

We had a great time on this trip. Dali was cool all in all. We had more fun doing the other parts and seeing all the great sights. Cadaques was a beautiful coastal town. We had lunch here and enjoyed the sea views.

I thought this trip was fabulous. I got to see a bit more of Spain along the beautiful coast. The Tour Guide was lovely and very helpful. I had always wanted to go to the Salvador Dali Museum and I was not disappointed. It was great to visit Dali's home in Cadaques too and to have a tasty fish meal in the seaside town.

Excellent day. Carlota explained everything very clearly which made for an easy day enjoying the Dali exhibition. Lunch at Cadaques was the perfect place to stop. We ate tapas on the beach and the views were amazing. Highly recommend this tour.

Really good trip. Not a rush like many other trips. You had a little time for coffee or just to sit in the museum. Great guide and the same bus driver as the three countries trip. Well Done.

Great trip! The guide was really good - answered our questions and was very knowledgeable about both the area and Dali's life. The two locations were absolutely incredible. I only wished that we had more time in the museum at Figueres. But I thought the free time set aside for lunch/walking around Cadaques and the tour of Dali's house there was perfect,

This was a really enjoyable day trip. I am not a Dali fan but my husband is and was thrilled by the experience. Our tour guide was well informed and relayed lots of interesting information regarding Barcelona and Dali while we were in transit to the sites. My only criticism would be that the bus was overcrowded making it necessary for us to share the back seat with 2 other adults. It was squashed and the windows do not allow a good view of the scenery.

I made this trip on June 2, 2016 with some friends in a small group of 16 people.
We knew what we will see but we were delighted by their professionalism and courtesy, Feliciano our guide and driver Rafa. I learned from Feliciano a lot about Dali's life and work, about where was born and lived much of his life, plus details about Barcelona. I can say that, this two have made to us an extraordinary day.
It is the first time I appeal to viator.com, but it certainly will not be the last - I think I found a new support in my
