DALÍ THEATRE-MUSEUM IN FIGUERES.
Described as the world's largest surrealist object.
Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre-Museum rises on the remains of the former Municipal Theatre of Figueres and is considered to be the last great work of Salvador Dalí. Everything in it was conceived and designed by the artist so as to offer visitors a real experience and draw them into his unique and captivating world.
The Dalí Theatre-Museum's collection allows the visitors to capture the artistic journey of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) through a broadspectrum of works. The route around the rooms allows visitors to capture his first artistic experiences, surrealism, nuclear mysticism and his passion for science, guiding them tothe works of the last part of his life.
DALÍ'S HOUSE IN PORTLLIGAT.
The current House-Museum in Portlligat was Salvador Dalí's only placed of residence, the place where he normally lived and worked until 1982 when, after Gala's death, he moved to the Púbol Castle.
In 1930, Salvador Dalí set up home in a small fisherman's hut in Portlligat, drawn to it by the landscape, the light and the isolation of the place. On the basis of that initial construction, over the course of forty years he created his own house. As he himself defined it, it was "like a real biological structure [...]. Each new pulse in our life had its own new cell, its room. The resulting form is the current labyrinthine structure which, taking, the BearLobby as the starting point, spreads out around in a succession of spaces linked by narrow corridors, slight level changes and blind passageways. Packedwith a multitude of objects and memoires belonging to Dalí, these zones are decorated with features that make them particularly cosy: carpets, whitewash, dried flowers, velvet upholstery, antique furniture, etc. Furthermore, all the rooms have windows of different shapes and proportions framing a landscape which is a constant point of reference in Dalí's work: the Portlligat bay.
GALA DALÍ CASTLE OF PÚBOL.
At the Gala-Dalí Castle of Púbol, open to the public since 1996, visitors can discover the medieval building in which Gala infuses Salvador Dalí's creativity right down to the finest details, and which goal was to provide Gala with a quiet and secluded place. It was the time passing that determined the transformation of this castle that became, between 1982 and 1984, Salvador Dalí's last studio and finally the mausoleum of his muse.
