“Wonderful visit to Dali´s house”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

It was a wonderful insight into Dali´s private life and just magical to think we were in the house where he spent at least 20 years, painting such master pieces.

Dali isn't an artist I like particularly but this house/ museum provides a fascinating insight into his life and helps explain the symbolism in his work. It is necessary to book in advance but the ticket office are most accommodating and will tell you if there is likely to be an unexpected vacancy. This happened as we went the day before in person to book tickets and may not be the case on the phone or internet. The little cove is so peaceful, there is a place for refreshments and a good book shop. Well worth it.

“An outstanding trip”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

What a beautiful location,only the trip by car to go
there is an experience by itself.
The house is small but you can fell some
sort of energy there.
Getting this personal details of dali and gala brings you
closer to the artist for sure.
Looking outside the window to the sea was outstanding.

Well organised entrance where tickets are booked in advance. Fascinating house which had an amazing peace and calm around it. Gardens and grounds and the sculptures there are lovely.

“Favorite Dali museum”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

While visiting Spain, we unintentionally found ourselves on a Dali pilgrimage.

Never a big fan of surrealism, I was favorably impressed with Dali's art beyond the canvas. The House in Port Lligat was our favorite Dali experience. It is very small and personal. The limited entrance makes the experience far superior to the crush at the Dali Museum in Figureres.

This was a highlight of our trip.

When we arrived, I realized that my reservation was for the day prior. The staff made a great effort to sort this out and were able to accommodate our visit even without a reservation. If you are kind and respectful, they certainly reciprocate.
