The brilliant Catalan painter Salvador Dalí is one of the most famous artists in the world.

For an amazing stay at Costa Brava, BE APARTMENT offers you the most elegant Luxury Apartments in various towns of the Coast.
The town of Figueres was the place of birth and death of Dalí. At carrer Monturiol 20 you will see the building where Dalí was born and at the Toy Museum (carrer Sant Pere, 1) you will see some of the toys he had as a child. The most emblematic place is the Theater-Museum of Dalí, undertaken by the artist himself, the place that brings together an immense amount of works of art and objects by the artist. From its spectacular façade decorated with eggs on the roof to the smallest object you can find, everything is worth admiring! Also, there is the crypt where the painter is buried. In addition, in front of the Theater-Museum you will find the Dalí Joies building, a collection of thirty-nine gold and precious gems designed by him.
The second place is Cadaqués. This gorgeous seaside village with white facades was a holiday resort of the Dalí family. They say that young Salvador discovered his passion for art there, thanks to a local painter, Ramon Pichot. The House-Museum of Salvador Dalí allows you to discover how the genius lived and worked together with his wife, Galá, as it has been preserved exactly as they both left it. The surrealism is breathed in every corner: from the dissected polar bear that served as a coat rack at the entrance to the garden full of kitsch objetcs. On the seafront of Cadaqués, you can see the statue of the painter and enjoy the beauty of the Costa Brava.
The municipality of Púbol, in the province of Girona, houses another of the properties that was owned by Dalí, the Castle of Púbol. The artist restored this house, an old medieval building, dedicating its efforts to turning it into a peaceful and charming place. The interior decoration is an art work of the paintert: the famous elephants with long legs, the pool decorated with busts of Richard Wagner and the Cadillac that belonged to him and his wife, still parked in the garage. Dalí has spent his old years here, even after his wife died.
