Salvador Dali Museum, Port Lligat, and Cadaques SMALL GROUP tour from Barcelona
From September 1 - June 30 (Winter):
Leave Figueres and head to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its white washed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay, this is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya. This is the perfect place for lunch. In the afternoon we will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him and where he built his house. Finally, we will move on to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes in the whole of the country.
From July 1 – August 31 (Summer):
Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.
Please note: Dali House will be closed from the 1st of January to the 4th of January and from the 11th of January until the 11th of February. It is still possible to see the house from the outside.

The tour leader Jordy made this trip fantastic. He delivered all the information we needed to enjoy and appreciate everything we saw. The stops were fantastic, don't miss the jewelry designed by Dali! It's beyond amazing. The museum astounded me, I wasn't expecting anything that could delight me the way it did. The personal stories Jordy told us added richness and understanding to everything we saw. The house of Dali exceeded my expectations. Very worthwhile journey!
A well organized tour with adequate time in the various places. Learned a lot from our very pleasant and knowledgeable guide.
Great History of Dali for all art lovers. Our guide was so knowledgeable and the trip was well planned and very comfortable. Have always loved VIATOR tours, and this was great for the whole family.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Laura, provided us with history and background, which helped with interpretation of the Dali artwork. Laura also shared her insights about alternative day trip possibilities. I followed up on one of her recommendations and it was one of the highlights of my time in Barcelona. Our tour brought us to the Castle of Púbol, which was very peaceful and beautiful. We ended our day at the picturesque seaside town of Georges.
Good experience in Dali country. Enjoyed the museum and house. Seaside town was charming. Our guide, Cam, was very thorough.
This trip had it all for the serious or casual Dalí fan and for anyone who might be looking for a scenic ride through the Pyrenees and to the beautiful Costa Brava. Stephen was our guide and did a very fine job with the tour. Highly recommend the trip.
The main attraction of this tour is the museum, which is great and definitely the highlight. The other items described are not really worth the price. The tour guide provided some interesting information about Dali during the 2 hr bus drive, but pretty much left us on our own for the 2 hrs inside the museum. Cadaques was deserted (January is not the best time to head to a beach town), so that part of the tour was a waste.
Our guide, Enrique, was absolutely fantastic! He was so enthusiastic about everything and made the trip totally worth it! The Dalí museum was amazing and having Enriques information on the way was really what made the experience surreal. Book this, you don't be dissadisappo!
Excellent tour, well thought-though itinerary, very interesting and informative. Our guide Stephen was excellent - very knowledgable and easy-going. Wish we could have more time in the Dali's Theatre-Museum and especially in his Jewellery museum - stunning masterpieces! A bit long drive back to Barcelona (took 3 hours) but it was raining heavily and we got diverted because of the floods. Overall it was a great experience - we might consider taking this tour in summer to visit Pubol Castle as well.
This was an illuminating trip, seeing not only Dali's creations at the museum (the jewelery is stunning and not to be missed), but having a glimpse of his life at home. Ana, our guide was very obliging and informative, even though I fear our group was a bit like herding cats.
I am a fan of Dali and of Barcelona. I have been to Barcelona many times but never did the Dali triad (museum in Figueres, visit to Cadaques, and then his house). I am glad I did, as it's a lot of ground to cover. Nicolas, our guide, shared the story of Dali's life on the long ride to the museum. Having the background offered a lot of context and I got a lot more out of the museum and his house than I would have on my own. Thank you, Nicolas.
What a good choice I made in selecting this complete Dali trip. Our guide was so full of knowledge and entertaining. Including the lovely town of Cadaques and Dali's house made the trip so much more memorable. I would have liked a little longer at the museum but I was able to see everything. I would recommend this day trip to everyone wanting to experience Dali while visiting in Barcelona.
A great look at the life and work of Salvador Dali.
