The house where Salvador Dalí lived and painted for a major part of his life is just a few minutes walk away and you must not miss the opportunity to visit. Conducted tours last approximately 45 minutes and it is a fascinating place; full off interesting items and detail, from the fun to the fantastic – and make sure you allow time to spend in the gardens.

Figueres is the town where Salvador Dalí was born and is now where he is buried – in the crypt of his Teatre Museu. Dalí commissioned the museum to house many of his famous works, installations and jewellery collection. It is the largest surrealistic object in the world and is the second most visited museum in Spain, after the Prado. It is a really fascinating place to visit and can be combined with a walk around Figueres’ shops and restaurants and the 16th century castle of Sant Ferran (don’t go on a Monday – most of the shops shut early!)
