Figueres with Dalí Museum and Girona Day Trip
Visit the two most emblematic places of northern Catalonia! Admire the unique works of Dalí at his Theatre-Museum in Figueres and get introduced to the royal medieval city of Girona!
Discover Girona and Figueres, both very important places of cultural heritage and historical interest. The tour starts with Figueres, famous as the birthplace of Salvador Dalí, the great surrealist Spanish painter. Enjoy a guided visit of this spectacular museum, designed by Dalí himself. Considered as the biggest surrealistic project in the world, you will see that even the building is a work of art. Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre-Museum was built upon the remains of the former Figueres theatre. The painter decided to create this space and to place in it the most representative part of his art: surrealist creations spanning from his earliest artistic experiences to the works of the last years of his life. On your guided visit inside the museum you will find various collections and series’ of paintings, sculptures and monumental installations specially designed for the museum, such as the Mae West Room, the Wind Palace Room and the unique Rainy Cadillac construction.
After you have finished with the visit of the museum, have free time for lunch in Figueres - stroll around its picturesque streets and see the church of Sant Pere, where Dalí was baptised.
After lunch, proceed to Girona where you will enjoy the medieval atmosphere of the Old Town on a walking tour. A lot of things will leave you a lasting impression - Girona is one of the best preserved fortified towns, its wonderful location on the banks of River Onyar and its impressive bridges with colorful houses on the riverside have shaped the image of this picturesque city.
Walk around the city walls on the Passeig Arqueologic, where the best panoramic views can be seen. Also enjoy a visit to the Cathedral built in gothic-baroque style and unique for having the widest Gothic nave in the world.
