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

(380+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pubol vacation builder.

  • It is more than a museum. You can visit the garden and the inside of the house and feel free of sitting quietly or appreciating the details like you were a guest of every room. Very recommended.  more »
  • The place is a bit quirky, but you really shouldn't expect a high class gallery when visiting this place. It'll give you a great insider view to the life of Dali and Gala. We explored the castle by ou...  more »
  • Although an easy train ride from Girona to Flaca, we had a fair wait for a taxi, which needed a phone call first. We arranged for him to return in a couple of hours, which proved to be ample time for ...  more »
