As you’re staying in Figueres, one thing you just have to do is visit the Salvador Dalí Theatre-Museum, as it is a surrealist exhibition that you really must see. If it’s high season you really will need to buy tickets in advance on its website at www.fundaciodali.org.
Once you’ve finished visiting the Dalí Museum you can have lunch near the museum at the Restaurante Antaviana (Carrer Llers 5-7, Figueres +34.972.510.377 www.restaurantantaviana.cat); you should book a table in advance as it’s a small place and its cuisine is gourmet-class “slow food”.
After lunch, you can spend the afternoon in the bucolic and picturesque port of Portlligat, about 35 kilometres away. When you get to Portlligat, if you have a prior booking (which you can do by going to www.fundaciodali.org or by calling +34.972.251.015), you should visit Salvador Dali's House, as it’s a house that’s well worth seeing. The artist’s workshop and the feeling of entering an intimate space make it a place that must be visited. This house was Dali's main residence for some 50 years.
As you’re already in Portlligat, 5 kilometres away lies the Cap de Creus Natural Park with its lighthouse; this is the easternmost point on the peninsula and it’s a place that must be seen, as the magic you’ll feel in this setting is unique. When you round the gentle bend in the Cap de Creus coastline you will come to Cadaqués, one of the most beautiful fishing villages in Catalonia; it's a magical moment; you can rest and enjoy a romantic stroll among the beautiful white houses of the old part of Cadaqués, soak your feet beside the fishing boats or wander along the picturesque promenade.
Cadaqués is an ideal place to feel at peace, sitting and gazing as the day comes to an end, a day full of intense and beautiful memories.
