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

4.3
#4 of 36 in Museums in Province of Girona
Art Museum Historic Site
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.
