Casa Dalí, a minute’s walk away, is a key place to explore during your stay with us. The house was Salvador Dalí’s only fixed abode from 1930, when attracted by the landscape, the light and the isolation of the Port Lligat bay, he moved into what was no more than a small fisherman’s hut. Over the years Dalí constructed each of the additional rooms of the house, resulting in the labyrinthine structure as it stands today, packed with a multitude of objects and mementoes belonging to Dalí and his wife Gala.
Theatre-Museum Dalí, Figueres
The capital of the Alt Emporda region, Figueres, is most known worldwide for being the site of the Theatre-Museum Dalí, which houses a great deal of the painter’s works. Salvador Dalí decided, early in the 1960’s, to construct his museum inside the ruins of the old Municipal Theatre of Figueres, and he dedicated himself to the task for over a decade, designing the smallest details until the official inauguration on 28th September 1974. The Theatre-Museum Dalí, the largest surrealistic object in the world, now contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí and also includes works that the artist created expressly for the space, such as the Mae West Room. Dalí was also keen to include works by other artists, including El Greco and Marcel Duchamp amongst others. The museum has to be seen as a whole, as the great work of Salvador Dalí, for everything in it was conceived and designed by the artist in order to offer visitors a chance to explore his surreal and unique world.
Some of the contemporary artists joining us on the Time+Space Cadaqués holiday may also like to offer painting and art or photography classes for those guests that would like to explore their own creative impulses! This will be on a slightly ad hoc basis and dependent on the specific artist and Time+Space weekend.
