I LOVE DALI


  
Parking in Figueres is difficult but J is so good at city parking we were only 800m away from the museum / gallery de Salvador Dali 42.274169 2.953803 Parking co-ords

All I can say of the exhibits is they make me smile as I was so interested I found it a doddle but poor J found it hard going..and had to pay full price as he’s not old enough for concessions ..crying into his beer again …I’m old enough .. Smirks ..after our three hour tour seeing some of Dali’s weird and wonderful art we made our way to the coast ..to Cadaques and Portlligat where Dali lived most of his life .. I have known of this village Portlligat since the 70’s as my tutor at Farnham college of art had a holiday home there and used to watch Dali coming to the beach area with junk for one of his installations .. Leave his art for a day then come down and destroy it …since hearing this story I have wanted to come here and it’s as fabulous as expected…phew

I don’t seem to be able to upload my photo of this lovely village here’s more info

Lligat village is located in a small bay on Cap de Creus peninsula, on the Costa Brava of the Mediterranean Sea, in the municipality of Cadaqués in the Alt Empordà comarca, in Girona province, Catalonia, Spain. The Island of Port Lligat (or Island of Portlligat) is located at the entrance of the bay, separated from the mainland by a narrow 30-metre-wide canal. Salvador Dalí lived in the village and his house has been converted into the Casa-Museo Salvador Dalí. Both the bay and the island have been represented in several of Dalí’s paintings, such as The Madonna of Port Lligat, Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus), and The Sacrament of the Last Supper.
