Mad, fabulously entertaining castle that Dalí built for wife Gala.

Dalí converted this 14th century castle specifically for Gala in the 1960s as her sanctuary, both from the world and from him - he was only allowed there at her invitation. The overall feel is quite Spartan with whitewashed walls, high, beamed ceilings and uncluttered rooms but there’s invariably the odd unmistakably Dalí touch like the Piano room where he had an alcove painted to look like a radiator (Gala had insisted on radiators being covered up). In the dining room, you can see the easel at which he painted his last works.
