This is an intriguing Barcelona day trip to Figueres. Private Salvador Dali museum tour features the life and art of surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. The first major town from the French-Spanish border, Figueres is Salvador Dalí’s birthplace and home for much of his lifetime.
In the 1960s, Figueres’s Mayor once told Dalí: “It would be nice if you donated a painting to your hometown.” Dalí answered: “I’ll give you a whole museum!” After almost 15 years of personal supervision by Dalí himself, the Dalí Theatre-Museum was inaugurated in 1974. The museum is a work of art in its own right: “the biggest surrealist object in the world,” in Dalí’s own words.
The museum boasts the largest and most diverse collection of Dali’s works, including paintings, sculptures, mechanical devices, and other curiosities. The museum maintains so many works they do not fit all in the Museum and spill over the square and streets next to it. One of the more unusual features is a living-room installation with custom furniture that looks like the face of Mae West when viewed from a certain angle.
Besides visiting the Salvador Dalí Museum and Theatre during your Barcelona day trip, you will have the opportunity to walk through Figueres and see the house where the artist was born and spent his early childhood.
You will return to Barcelona via private transportation in the late afternoon.
