What travellers are saying
- Fantastic experience and a must do for arts lovers visiting the area.
As soon as you walk in you are drawn into the surreal world of Dali and absorbed in the art.
As they limit numbers coming through you can take your time and don’t feel rushed.
Best art museum that I have visited.Written 9 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We hadn’t heard of this castle but we had an afternoon to kill in Figueres and found it online. It’s an easy 20 minute walk from the town and costs only 4 Euros to visit but we spent a good 1.5 hours there. It’s extremely well preserved and you can practically hear the sound of the troops and horses and imagine the coaches and carts clattering in. There’s a well-signed trail to follow and an informative film at the start. if this place is not used as a film set it’s a waste! There was hardly anyone there when we visited and we’d like to encourage more people to see it.Written 27 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A very nice museum, not big but with a lot of toys from different times. A bit disappointed that the train model was partially working. Nice to see the toys developmentWritten 8 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We really enjoyed this exhibit. The pieces were very Dali. Many of the religious pieces had a double entendre as they were made during Franco's rule. The earrings were my personal favorite. Many of these we created for wealthy patrons who wanted to be outrageous in their jewels. Being noticed is the keystone of these individuals and Dali did it well. A must see for lovers of Dali's art.Written 10 August 2021
- Amazing collection of Salvador Dali’s impressive creations. He personally designed the theatre so that the experience was interactive. An example - we walked into a room with sofa and other objects and a large hoop with beige fibres. But then you climb the ladder and look through the mirror and it is the face and hair of a woman. Most impressive of all though were the Dali jewels. Outstanding.Written 11 August 2022
- Very Daliesque statue. Internally open and abstract. May be confused with a deep sea diver which is how Dali saw himself in his art.Written 10 August 2021
- Way nicer downtown and ramblas area than I expected. Some higher end stores, nicer restaurants. I had overlooked figueres as a town, since I was going for Dalí, but I will plan to return.Written 28 May 2022
- The church of San Pere is an old church, founded in the ninth century.
It is open to all, a few people sat in the pews and prayed, others walked around to observe the stained glass windows and other ornamentsWritten 10 February 2022
- We absolutely love it. Museum owners are extremely friendly and attentive people who are willing to share their knowledge about collection. Amazing exposition. Unique items.
Highly recommended!!!Written 31 August 2021
- We stumbled across this when visiting the Dali Museum and found we also got free entry with our Dali Museum ticket. The staff were very helpful and they had an exhibition in part of the museum about the history of the famous chefs and restaurants that developed in this area over the past 60 years. Some fascinating memorabilia and stories in this exhibition.Written 26 May 2019
- This building was the residence of the Dalí family when the great Salvador was born. Not the entire building of course, just at number 6 on the ground floor where Salvador Dalí's family had a notary.
Today it's a private building not accessible to the general public. There's a plaque outside to commemorate the birth of Salvador Dali in 1904.
Not much to see really, but worthwhile visiting as a part of a Salvador Dali trail.Written 10 July 2019
- It's a huge square in Valencia full of tourists and locals most of time.
It's surrounded by many shopping stores and restaurants.
It's a nice place with good atmosphere for relaxation.Written 20 February 2020
- This monument stands in tribute to Narcís Monturiol, a native of Figueres and Spanish (or Catalan if you prefer) artist and engineer who invented the first air-independent and engine driven submarine.
The monument is located in at the end of the La Rambla, featuring a white stone plinth atop which sits a sculpture. The plinth has a profile portrait of Monturiol surrounded by relief sculptures of a man and woman, "frolicking" on a rock pool. The sculpture is a little hard to decipher and I guess it's a naked Nike presenting a laurel wreath, the symbol of victory.
Not a must see, but worth a small detour if on La Rambla anyway.Written 10 July 2019
- The Face of Dali is a cut little piece of public art located at the eastern end of La Rambla, close to a monument to Narciso Monturiol. Who, like Dali was also another native of Figueres. This artwork in tribute to Dali is very much in keeping Dali’s style and sense of humour even it’s fairly simple in comparative terms. This is simply one of those optical illusion type mirrors that shows a doodle in the likeness of Dali by reflecting back an disproportionate face of Dali drawn on the pavement.
Not a must see, just a bit of fun artwork.Written 10 July 2019
