Salvador Dalí is best known for the striking and bizarre images of his surrealist work. His Castle Museum is located in Pubol and was officially the residence of the artist's wife, Gala. The three-story structure was built in the 14th century, during a period of significant affluence experienced by the Pubol Barony. Dalí bought the castle in 1970 to fulfill a promise to Gala that he would one day buy her a palace. It was to be her residence exclusively, which he could visit only by invitation. When purchased, the castle was in need of extensive restoration, which was completed in Dali's own unique way, with the structural imperfections of the ruined property used to create unusual open spaces.
The gardens were also restored and decorated with many sculptures, busts, and paintings. Much of the castle remains as it was when the Dalís lived there, with many articles of clothing, furniture, ornaments and artwork still present. Explore with your guide this fascinating homage to the master.
Leaving the castle, a brief drive brings you to Mas Oller, a local cellar, to enjoy a sample of Catalán wine and refreshments.
You will return to Palamós afterwards.
