Discover Dali’s House and Studio | Explore the Stunning Cap de Creus Peninsula.
We take you on an unforgettable tour to explore Cadaques and Salvador Dali’s house on the shores of the tiny fishing hamlet of Port Lligat on the beautiful Cap de Creus peninsula.
The largely Cap de Creus peninsula juts out into the Mediterranean and gives the Costa Brava or Wild Coast its name. Since childhood, Salvador Dali’s family summered in the beautiful fishing port of Cadaques with its distinctive narrow streets and whitewashed houses.
Surrounded by the mountains and rocky coast of Cap de Creus, Dali would spend his time swimming, fishing and painting, inspired by the scenes of local life, the vibrant light and the strange rocky forms created by the sea and wind.
Your day starts with a guided tour of Dali and his wife Gala’s house in Port Lligat. Originally a fisherman’s hut, which Dali bought in 1930, the couple spent their lives adding extensions and rooms on different levels and creating a unique and charmingly idiosyncratic home.
The house holds a fascinating collection of Dali’s artworks, his favourite objet trouvé and the couple’s domestic belongings. The back of the house opens to the garden and swimming pool, also built on many levels and a showcase for Dali’s surrealist artworks.
The tour also takes in Dali’s studio, with its enormous easel and window allowing him to create large-scale canvases in plenty of natural light.
After the tour of Dali’s house, you explore the wild landscape of Cap de Creus, where you will discover some of the natural forms he used in his artworks.
Then it’s on to neighbouring Cadaques, one of the most beautiful towns on Spain’s Mediterranean coast, for a leisurely lunch at a terraza table next to the sea at its best seafood restaurant.
After lunch, there’s time to explore Cadaques’ narrow streets with their whitewashed houses, cafes, and arts and crafts shops before the journey home.
