Where Dali dreamed
A surreal trip around Girona's Dalinian triangle

Eugenio Salvador Dali was born, lived and worked in the area of Emporda, in the north of the province of Girona. Here, he found inspiration for his extensive international art, which was nourished in equal parts by the turbulent waters of his subconscious and by the gentle colours of the Mediterranean. Figueres, Port Lligat and Pubol stand at the corners of Girona's Dalinian triangle. These locations are permeated by the character of the Catalan genius, his biography and his eccentricities, and offer up shapes and colours that draw visitors into the world of surrealism through museums, castles, houses and even nightclubs. The world that Dali dreamed can be explored through his paintings. The world where he lived is right here in these recommended destinations.
