Dalí Triangle: The life and work of the Figueres-born artist Salvador Dalí ( 1904-1989 ) is condensed into three spaces. The Theatre-Museum, in Figueres. The second space is Portlligat House-Museum, in Cadaqués.The last leg of the triangle is the Púbol Castle, in the township of La Pera, which Dalí gave as a gift to his beloved Gala.

 


It boasts a spectacular and emblematic metallic dome, work of the architect Pérez Piñero, restaurated in 1998. The exterior of the buildings joined to the museum are decorated in the "Dalí style" with enormous eggs on the top, the same as the Galatea tower, (the old Gorgot tower of the old city walls), where Salvador Dalí spent the last years of his life.It is the most visited museum in Spain, after the Prado in Madrid.  
 


Portlligat, where you will find Salvador Dalí’s house, with big eggs on the top, which was the “divine” surrealist’s residence and refuge of inspiration.At the moment, one can visit the House-Museum at Portlligat.
 


Medieval Púbol castle-during the 1970s the residence of Dali's wife and in the early-1980s his own -was opened to the public in 1996 as the GALA DALÍ CASTLE HOUSE-MUSEUM. Inside are paintings and drawings Dalí gave Gala to adorn the castle, elephant scuplptures Dalí installed in the garden, and a collection of Gala's haute couture dresses, as well as the furniture and innumerable objects Gala and Dalí used to decorate the castle.
