Salvador Dalí's Museum in Figueres

The Museu-Teatre Salvador Dalí in Figueres

Figueres, the capital of Alt Empordà, is a charming town situated between the eastern end of the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava, 100 km north of Barcelona. The city is famous for being the birthplace of the prominent Catalan surrealist painter Salvador Dalí.

Dali once said, “Where, if not in my own town, should the most extravagant and solid of my work endure, where if not here?”

Salvador Dalí and Figueres

In 1973, Dalí inaugurated his most ambitious project: The Dalí Theatre-Museum. The building looks like a work of art itself and contains the broadest range of works spanning every phase of Dalí's creative evolution, Impressionism, Futurism, Cubism, as well as his Surrealist masterpieces.

Some of the most outstanding works exhibited here are Port Alguer (1924), The Spectre of Sex Appeal (1932), Poetry of America-The Cosmic Athletes (1943) and Afternoon and Evening (1979), among many others.

The museum also houses a small collection of work by other artists who Dalí wanted to include, such as Evarist Vallès, El Greco and Antoni Pitxot.

Figueres has an important heritage. The castle of Sant Ferran, that can be visited, is one of the most impressive fortresses in Catalonia and a real architectural jewel of 18th century. Its enormous size and its perimeter (over three kilometres), make it one of the largest in Europe.

The various attractions of Figueres are complimented by its superior location, which enables you to discover the most beautiful parts of the Costa Brava.
