Dalí & Figueres Free Tour
Dalí & Figueres Free Tour
Discover Figueres, the birthplace of Salvador Dalí. Get to know its interesting history, tour its old town and marvel at the Theater-Museum.
Where: La Rambla, Figueres
Duration: 1,5 hours
We will start the tour with a historical introduction to the city. The Figueres area was already populated by the Iberians more than 2000 years ago, until the Romans arrived. Even so, much of the center of Figueres developed during medieval times.
Did you know that the inventor of the submarine was born in this city? We will start by talking about Narcís Monturiol, the main monument on the Rambla. We will then visit some of the most emblematic and important modernist buildings in the center, such as the new Theater and other important family houses.
From there we will go to the two houses in which Salvador Dalí was born and lived and, later, through some narrow streets, squares that had been markets and a beautiful theater, we will arrive at the Town Hall area: the liveliest part of the city, the heart of the historic center.
There we will see the old Church and, next to it, the imposing Dalí Museum, which had been an old theatre and had a tragic outcome. Find out why the painter decided to locate his museum in this exact place!
