Owner description: Medeival castle painter Dali presented to his wife, Gala, is now a museum. Closed 1 January to 14 March
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Worth a detour to visit this part of the Dali triangle. Its small domestic scale is charming but where did anyone cook or go to the loo? The see through coffee table on the floor above the model horse is brilliant - I want it .- and don't miss the washbasin taps. The garden is a pleasant stroll but was it a lapse of taste when Dali bought the orange Datsun? And Gala's frumpy dresses were a disappointment.

What a blast ! Typical Dali-esque over the top design & modified from it's original "manor-house" use to a love-nest for Dali & his muse

Pubol is a beautiful village and the Dali-Gala Castle is also beautiful. It sheds light on a more domestic side of life. It is an opulent home, not without its quirks, and monument to the love between Dali and Gala.

Using Calella de Parafrugel as a base, we were able to visit Pubol, Figueres, and Cadaqués. Three very different sites and all were highlights of our trip. The Castella and it's setting are so charming, tucked into a small village. 15th C. walls hide the fantasy-world of Dali's art and love for Gala.

The "house" and the museum are over-the-top and represent the over-the-top genius that Dali was. The artist with both the talent and brains to create interesting, sarcastic, and mind blowing pieces. This is a must see if you can on a side trip from Barcelona.
