A trip to the “Costa Brava” Figueres and the Dali Museum has been organized. Thanks to the magical influence of the surrealism, this village allows us to live every kind of adventure. It is the cultural, commercial and social centre of Alt Empordá where Dalí was born and buried. The great Dalí Theatre–Museum gathers the work of the artist as a whole. In fact he did not want any sort of catalogues or chronological order for his works. Among them: “Gala desnuda mirando el mar que a 18 metros aparece el presidente Lincoln”, “La cesta del pan”, “Galarina”, “Leda atómica”, ... We will also visit Pubol, place related with Dalí universe. This visit includes lunch.
