The Costa Brava region is not only known for its natural beauty, gastronomy and rich culture; it is also known for being the birth place of the world’s renowned painter Salvador Dali. The artist’s strong attachment to his roots can nowadays be seen in the areas of Pubol, Portlligat and Figuere; also known as the famous Dali Triangle. Discover the fascinating world of Dali and find out everything about the places you must visit.
Within a 1 hour drive from Castell d’Empordà, the Portlligat Museum House, was Dali’s most permanent residence. The unique location, where most of Dali’s artwork was created, has been preserved as a museum and adventurous labyrinth filled with memories and objects of the painter. It is one of the highlights of the Dali Triangle and therefore this museum is not to be missed!
The Dali Theatre-Museum was a municipal theatre that was destroyed after the Spanish Civil War, but luckily Dali decided to transform it into his principal museum. Located at 40 minutes from Castell d’Empordà, the unique architecture and style of this art centre will amaze you as you visit one of the most treasured places of the artist. In fact, it is at this location that the painter was buried and remains within a crypt.
