Depart central Barcelona by climate-controlled coach, and travel to Figueres, birthplace of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, who died in 1989.
On route, hear about Dalí´s life and art, and discover how he remodeled Figueres´ original Municipal Theatre into a museum dedicated to his work.
After about 1.5 hours, arrive and marvel at the Dalí museum’s flamboyant exterior: its roof topped by a series of giant eggs. View the Dalí art collection, the largest in the world; including famous pieces like the Mae West room and the 1945 Basket of Bread painting. Then, explore the neighboring Dalí Jewels exhibition, seeing some of the stylized jewels that Dalí designed.
Next, head to Girona, one of Spain’s prettiest historical cities, and one of its most prosperous in medieval times. Take a walking tour around the cobblestoned Old Town, learning how the city’s wealth drove the construction of its Romanesque and Gothic buildings.
Admire Girona Cathedral, built between the 11th and 18th centuries, and hear about the city’s Jewish population during the MIddle Ages, one of the most significant of its time in Europe. Delve into the old Jewish quarter, one of the world’s best-preserved, and absorb its narrow lanes and porticoed squares.
During your tour, see some of the locations used in Season Six of the TV series, Game of Thrones. Girona was chosen to represent the land of Braavos in the series, and its backstreets appear in several scenes.
Next, follow your guide to enjoy Girona’s trademark view: the brightly painted houses huddled along the River Onyar. Capture photos of the views, and then visit a local restaurant for a delicious lunch.
Afterward, enjoy free time to stroll, sightsee and shop, and return to Barcelona by coach, ending your tour with a city-center drop-off.
