Figueres, Dali Museum

While here, you will enjoy a two-hour guided tour of the Jewish quarter of the city. Explore the Arabian baths, Roman building inspired by the Roman public baths with three rooms, each with a different temperature of water in their swimming pools. In spite of the presence of elements of Muslim origin, the construction corresponds to Romanesque.

After your visit you will continue to Figueres, hometown of Salvador Dali for some free time to explore the area. Your admission to the Teatre-Museu Dali and “Dali joies” is included in your tour. Lunch (additional charge) is followed by a visit to the Dali Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of Dali’s work in the world. The building itself can be considered a work of art – an absolute must for art lovers!
