Explore Dalíland to see what inspired one of the masters of surrealism.

Roughly two hours north of Barcelona is a place known as “Dalíland.” Officially the Alt Empordà region, it was here that preeminent surrealist Salvador Dalí was born, died and created his greatest body of art. “In this privileged place the real and the sublime almost meet,” he once said. “My mystical paradise starts on the plains of the Empordà, surrounded by the Les Alberes hills, and reaches plenitude in Cadaqués Bay. The landscape is my ongoing inspiration.”

Today, the region is an essential destination for admirers of the artist’s mind-boggling creations. Three destinations in particular—Figueres, Púbol and Portlligat—highlight important chapters from his life and form the popular Dalinian Triangle travel route.

Along the route, travelers can visit two of Dalí’s residences as well as his self-designed museum. Each offers a scintillating glimpse into the mind of a dreamer and can be visited on a day excursion from Barcelona. Set out early and stop first at the Púbol castle museum outside of Girona, before moving on to Figueres and Portlligat.
