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 an excellent experience! Our guide Feliciano was a very knowledgeable, funny and patient guy! He went through Dali's life and works in detail. Answered all our questions and gave us ample time to visit Dali's museum and the gems museum and then Dali's house in Pubol and then finally the nice beach at Coasta Brava. He gave us some excellent tips on Tapas bars in Barcelona. It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip!

Just as described, the bus was comfortable and our guide was very knowledgeable of Dali and his works and life. Figueres museum was amazing and with plenty of time to enjoy the museum and the jewelry museum. Both tickets are included in the tour. Then Cadaques was breathtaking, just as Dali used to paint it. Beautiful, peaceful, a place to stay next time we are in Spain. Luckily, our tour included Port Lligat, instead of Pubol, and tickets had to be paid separately but the tour guide had them available for purchase. If you research, Port Lligat tickets have to be purchased in advance and with an exact time for the visit or you would miss it, so it was very convenient to be able to purchased them at the bus and at the exact time of the tour. An amazing experience for Dali lovers.

The meeting point wasn and #39;t terribly hard to find. Departure was prompt. The tour left in a minibus with about 15 people or so. The guide was knowledgeable and polite giving us info on the sites since the moment we left city center. All stops on this tour are gorgeous and worth the money.
