Visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueras
The Dalí Theatre-Museum is located in Figueres, in the Plaça Gala-Salvador Dalí. It is a museum entirely dedicated to the work of Dalí and is housed in the building of the former Municipal Theatre of Figueres, built between 1848 and 1850.
In gratitude and homage to the internationally renowned artist Salvador Dalí, the city of Figueras proposed and ceded the facilities of the former Theatre to the artist so that the Dalí Museum could be built, and so that the city of the artist's birth would have representative works by the author.
The Dalí Theatre-Museum was inaugurated in 1974 and has the particularity that it was conceived and designed by the artist himself during his lifetime, which gives it a great artistic value and of course to the admirers of Salvador Dalí.
It is now one of the most visited museums in Spain and the world.
The Dalí House-Museum at Portlligat (Cadaqués)
The Dalí House-Museum was a small fisherman's house in Portlligat (municipality of Cadaqués), where the artist lived and worked for many years. They lived in this house with his wife from 1930 until the death of Gala (his wife) in 1982.
Now it has become a spectacular museum, a must for admirers of the artist (painter, sculptor, engraver, set designer...), where we can see and enjoy details of his work in every room, bedroom, living room or the spectacular outdoor gardens.
At the Dalí House-Museum we can delve into the artist's thoughts and tastes to try to better understand his imagination and creativity. We will realise that Dalí's imprint is in every detail and corner of the house.
