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 my favorite excursion from Barcelona. Our tour guide was wonderful, very informative and engaging. It was a beautiful trip. We also had free time Cadaques, as we chose to hang out on the seaside rather than do the second part of the excursion. Only because the museum had been enough for me. Those in our group who went to see Gala's home loved it. I wish I could remember our guides name. I think it was Anna. On the way back I was getting car sick, and the guide let me have her seat in the front of the bus. Thank you!

Our tour guide, Anna, was awesome! She was knowledgeable, fun, and very accommodating. Our group of people on the tour was also really fun....we were lucky, I think! In addition to our fun group, the museum and house was amazing. We learned so much...it was a day that we will always remember!

Our favourite day trip from Barcelona. Figueres was out of this world and Dali's house at Port Lligat was really interesting to see. Lunch at Cadaques was a lovely stop. Highly recommend.
