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.

This was an excellent tour. We learned a huge amount. The Dali Museum was great fun, and unlike any museum we have visited before. It was very absorbing and you experience it, rather then just view it. One bonus was an exhibit of jewellery made by Dali. I had remarked that if we didn't get to it, no matter, as I wanted to spend a lot of time in the main museum. But. luckily, we did get to it and it was worth the visit. Some of the jewellery moved! It was beautiful, but also outside the box as it would be with Dali. We had lunch in Cadaques. We ate at Nord Est, which is a few minutes walk from the main area, but has fantastic views. The tour of Dali's house was also very interesting - a private guide took us around, and then we had time to explore. This is a long day, but really worth it.

This was my FAVORITE thing I did in the 3 weeks I was in Spain. The day is magical, informative and so wacky! You really step into Dali's world visiting the Dali Theatre in Figueres, the small seaside village of Cadaques for lunch and on to home that he and Gala shared. Our guide Feliciano was so knowledgeable and passionate about Dali that the day flew by. The group was intimate and though the crowds were large the timing and access we received made the day like it was just for us.

Oh my --- well this was one wonderful tour. Gloria or Glo as she told us to call her was the most entertaining guide I have ever had. She loved her subject and kept us entertained on the long bus ride. And oh this is a tour well worth taking....simply fascinating. But I must say It would not have been as special without Glo. High marks!

Brilliant! Let's you get into the unique mind of a great artist via his works, his home and his village. The trip was not rushed, giving us plenty of time to explore and enjoy lunch. Our guide was fantastic - a lot of fun.

This small group was indeed not that small, more than 12 persons. The very tall German tour guide sorry forgot his name spoke good English, though a little bit hard to follow at times. He has good control of time and the tour is well managed.
