Cadaqués is a picturesque fishing village located at the edge of Cap de Creus Cape, which can be reached by a long drive down a winding road, hence its isolation (2 h drive from Barcelona). This landscape inspired Dalí’s paintings. It is also where he spent his summer holidays as a child with his family. The artist always had a deep emotional link to the rugged landscape of the area. Back in 1930, he moved to live and paint in an angler’s shelter, in Port LLigat, within a 2-hour walk from Cadaqués (5 miles). He invested the following 40 years designing and expanding his surrealist home, of which he claimed: “it grows like a biological structure”. Our guide will take you through on a stunning surrealist itinerary, created by the artist, through the house and around the gardens. In the 1970s the social life of Salvador Dalí and Gala became intense around their home of Port LLigat. In 1982 when Gala, his muse and wife, passed away, Dalí moved to Púbol castle.
