Cadaqués

The Landscapes
of Dalí

Cadaqués is one of the most charming fishing villages in Catalonia. It is the white houses, cropped by blue colored doors and windows, and the narrow streets letting the sea breeze sneaks through that make it so alluring.

Very close to Cadaqués, in Portlligat, is one of the points of the Dalí Triangle, the Salvador Dalí House Museum. Attracted by the marine landscape, the light and its remoteness, Salvador Dalí settled in Portlligat in 1930, in a small fishing hut. For 40 years, the artist transformed this humble abode into his habitual residence. After his death, the house was turned into a museum.

Dalí's masterpiece

The other two points of the triangle are the Dalí Theater-Museum, in Figueres, and the Gala Dalí Castle, in Púbol. The museum is his masterpiece. From the seventies, the master of surrealism fully devoted himself to the museum project, designing and modifying it in the utmost detail, allowing visitors to be completely immersed in his universe. The artist also left his mark on the renovations of the castle, a gift he made to his muse Gala. He decorated the interior and painted the ceilings himself.
