Let's go to Figueres: Dalí museum + Sant Ferran fortress

Why Figueres?

Figueres, located in the north-eastern Catalonia, is the largest city near the border with France. It is the capital of Alt Empordà, a beautiful Catalan county with amazing beaches (Costa Brava) and impressive landscape. The city of Figueres (not nice) is very popular because there is the fantastic Museum of the Catalan painter Salvador Dalí, who was born in the city.

Dalí Museum

Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre-Museum was atop the remains of the former Theatre of Figueres, and contains a broad spectrum of works covering the artistic career of Salvador Dalí [masked]), from his early artistic experiences and his creations within the sphere of surrealism through to works dating from the last year of his life.

The Dalí Theatre-Museum has to be seen as a whole, as the great work of Salvador Dalí, since it was conceived of and designed by the artist in order to offer visitors a genuine experience that would take them into his entrancing and unique world.

The fortress of Sant Ferran

Few people know that the town has one of the largest military forts in Europe, the spectacular Sant Ferran Castle.

It is possible to visit the moats, the countermines, its majestic stables or to submerge into what is called the water cathedral, the huge cisterns of the arms square.

    Great, indeed. Eclectic adventurous international company setting, diving in old fortress catacombs, boating squeezed in claustrophobic undergroung lake tunnels, good food/wine, evening in a lively town with a perfectly weird Dali-esque theater building hosting the moustached weirdo's mind-blowing treasures... And the best is yet to come...

    Hi everybody, Just to remember tomorrow we will meet at 8.25 at Passeig de Gràcia Renfe Train Station (on the corner between Aragon street with Pau Claris street). The forecast weather is bad, but better I though. Clouds in the morning, rain in the afternoon. This is fine, because the plan is to visit the fortress in the morning, have lunch and visit Dali's Museum at 16:00 pm. So don't forget to bring an umbrella! I give you my phone number, so if you have any problem you can contact me (+34)[masked]

    Saludos, Toni
