Fantastically surreal museum – a must for Dalí lovers.

This could almost be called Dalí World, if it didn’t make it sound so tacky as this is very much the complete Dali experience. And I mean that in a good way. There are plenty of impressive paintings and artworks here too but the most famous ones are generally in major art museums elsewhere in the world. If you like Dalí though, this is definitely not to be missed.

Everything about this place is bizarre from the pink facade (complete with golden eggs) to the interior courtyard with two 1950s Cadillacs and a version of Michelangelo’s 'David' made of tyres. The Mae West room is where the ‘lips’ sofa combine with drapes and a massive portrait to create a trompe l’oeil vision of her face.

Be warned however, this is one of the most popular attractions on the Costa Brava, so regardless of what time of year you visit, you’re more than likely to need to allow at least an hour if not longer queuing for admission.

Value for money

Price advice

Admission is 11 euros or 8 euros for students, unemployed or OAPs on production of relevant ID.

Expert tips

As above, be prepared to spend time queuing, particularly if you're visiting in the summer.
