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 ourselves, no guided needed, English explanations on the walls available. Worth visiting.

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 us to take in the exhibits and tour this wonderful house, Whether or not you are a fan of... More

This is pretty interesting but to be honest if you are short of time go to the amazing Dali theatre museum in Figeueres. It's an odd shrine to an actually very conservative surrounding. Not much Dali work on display and it's mainly original furniture and Galas dresses, a bit like going to a historical open home showing.

This is a favourite spot of ours to take visitors to. The castle is compact but bursting with unusual objects and quirky touches. The gardens contain the famous elephants and giraffes and below the hall is a stuffed horse. Gala has a lovely co;llection of designer gowns from famous couturiers in Paris and Madrid and a boudoir to match. It... More

interesting to see the last house that was inhabited by Salvador Dali. It is located in a very nice Catalan Village

We cycled over from nearby Madremanya; the village and the castle (which is effectively > 1/2 the town) is supported by a huge modern parking lot to the west. Our visit was during a quiet period ex for a group of school-children (whose voices added considerable levity and charm). Lent interesting context to the life of Gala Dali; an especially... More

A quiet place to views and try and appreciate the history of Dali’s wife who lived here on her own, allegedly Dali had to be invited or request a visit. There is not a lot of Dali art and but it is an important part of the Dali story. If you want more Dali art try the Theatre Museum and... More

We went to Pubol just to visit the Dali Gala castle and see the place that was the home of Dali's muse and wife! This was a place for Gala to rest and Dali could only come to visit after Gala ( Dali's Wife) sent him a written invitation!

This castle, purchased by Dali for his wife Gala, is quite interesting. The castle itself is nicely preserved since its renovation by Dali. The adjacent garden is lush, quiet and contains several of Dali's sculptures. Within the castle is more of Dali's art made specifically for Gala and her castle. Touring the castle and grounds was a pleasure. The castle... More
