Salvador Dalí's hometown, Figueres, is also home to numerous interesting museums, a historic centre that you will want to explore and bustling shops and terraces. What more could you ask for?
It is undisputed: the Dalí Theatre-Museum is a must. Brilliance as far as the eye can see that won't leave you indifferent, from the Cadillac that greets you in the central courtyard to the impressive Palau del Vent room. Another museum, which is quite different but just as interesting,, is the Toy Museum, with more than 4,000 examples, ancient photographs and a space for outdoor activities. However, this city's charms cannot all be seen between four walls: stroll along the lively Rambla and the squares in the historic centre to thoroughly sample everything that Figueres has to offer. Or recharge yourself batteries and walk up to the Castle of Sant Ferrán with its characteristic star layout, well worth a visit!
