Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol), Pubol

(4.2/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Dalí and his wife Gala lived in Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol), which has been open to the public since 1996. The artist’s eccentric additions complement the building’s medieval origins. With documentation dating back to the 11th century, the structure’s glory years fell between the late 14th and early 15th centuries, and Dalí bought it nearly in ruins in 1969. Gala remains buried here. Take a look at Dalí’s cars; note that even geniuses make pedestrian purchases like a Datsun sometimes. Plan extra time for arriving to the town and finding the museum. Consider booking a tour in your preferred language in advance.

  • Interesting to learn more about the life of Dali with Gala. This castle was the place of holiday and retirement's Gala.

  • The castle is a must for lovers of Dali lid. However would recommend directive a guide, to fully enjoy the beauty of the site and details but would be lost. If it is true that when you buy the tickets it has right to a free guide, it is also true that we had was pretty bad, he gave an very fast and approximate overview of Dalí and gala, and all in catalan. Finally, even we were informed that we had right to a guide. Ultimately, the experience itself is cool even if it is poorly organized.
