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.

Venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.

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.

This tour was well worth our time and money. The ride was long but Cam made good use of the time by providing excellent insight into the life of Salvador Dali, and more. The countryside was breathtaking near Caldeques. The Dali house was the best part of the tour. We wished we had more time there. Don’t skip the part. Thanks Cam for making it a perfect day!

This was a wonderful full day trip from Barcelona. We toured the Dali museum and then toured Dali's home but the highlight of the tour was our guide Feliciano. He was very knowledgeable about Dali but was also had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us engaged.

Ana, our guide, really made the trip worth it. We could have spent hours in both the Dali museum and relaxing by the coast in Cadaques, which is my only regret. Ana did a great job managing the group as well as adding a personal touch by giving us an in-depth view of Dali's life. She really did an amazing job by being our guide as well as an expert driver!

Our family had a great day with our tour guide Cam! It was a long day but he kept everything and everyone on schedule. We learned a lot and would recommend this tour highly. One of the highlights of our trip.

We had a great day with our very knowledgeable guide Rodriguez. We went in a comfortable large bus. We stopped firstly at the Dali museum which was fantastic, had a brief lunch then went to the castle he bought for his wife which again was amazing to walk through. Then to the Costa Brava where we could take a dip or enjoy a drink beachside. This is a great day, must do for Dali fans and even if youre not yet, you will most likely be by the end of the tour. The meeting place was easily located in central Barcelona. Well worth the money but its a full day needed to put aside to do this.

We traveled with my husband and teen boys; we all enjoyed and had a good time during the trip. Our guide was excellent, very personable, knowledgeable and funny. The only complaint that I have is that we (my family) did not have enough time to finish seeing the museum, but otherwise it gas a really good experience and the trip was comfortable.

Very accessible tour. Met at Explore Catalunya -- Small group outing in a minivan. Guide was extremely knowledgeable. Got to see lots of country side, along with the seaside towns. Seeing both the Dali museum and Dail's residence in one day was a special treat.

Cam was our tour guide and truly extraordinary. As an art student Cam had a true grasp on the essence of Dali and his surrealistic, prolific work. The information Cam shared at Dali’s museum and home was fascinating. After going on many tours in Europe, my husband and I agreed, “Cam’s was the best!
