About the ride
Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Barcelona.
The driver will suggest the route of the trip with the key attractions that are worth the visit. Since this experience is a personal tour, the driver will stop at any attraction of your choice and spend there as much time as you wish.
To get a better picture of this 8-hour trip, we outline the preliminary route of the 'Day Trip From Barcelona to Salvador Dalí Museum in Figueres.
In 1.5 hours you will reach the town of Figueres where the famous Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dalí was born. You will have a chance to drive or walk around the city center and get familiar with the local life. In Figueres, you will see Sant Ferran Castle situated on a hill. Buil in the 18th century it was the vast military fortress and know is the biggest monument of Catalonia. You will also find a magnificent Gothic Church - Parish church of St. Peter.
Of course, the main attraction of the whole trip is Dalí Theatre and Museum. Around 1.5 million visitors come to this museum each year and it is not a surprise. Dalí Theatre and Museum fascinates not only by the one-of-the-kind collection of surrealist art of Dalí but also has an outstanding interior and exterior. Salvador Dalí wanted his museum to look surrealistically and theatrically. His dream came true and today people admire not only his works but also the museum itself.
Salvador Dalí is buried in the museum, in a crypt that is below the stage.
