The legacy of a genius; that’s what you’ll come across if you take a stroll around the centre of Figueres, the capital of the Alt Empordà region, which is home to the Teatre-Museu Salvador Dalí. Contemplating the work of Catalonia’s most iconic surrealist is a unique experience for all five senses. From paintings and engravings to photography, sculpture and holograms, here you’ll find Dalí’s imaginative universe in all its splendour. While the museum is incredible enough to be the highlight of your trip, Figueres is a very nice town to explore and is just a short drive away from the Gulf de Roses on the Costa Brava.
Catalonia is a land that is rich in history, culture, and nature. Barcelona, the capital, is a great example of that, but you're missing out if you don't venture out and explore all that Catalonia has to offer. Dalí, for example, left a single centre full of surrealism in his native Figueres. The iconic mountain of Montserrat also has one of the most prestigious art galleries in the country, and in Tarragona you can explore ruins and masterpieces left by the Romans and enjoy amazing beaches.
