What will I see?
The Dalí Museum
The Dalí Theatre-Museum of Figueres offers a unique experience of being able to observe, live and enjoy the work and thought of one of the most extraordinary minds of the 20th century. It contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), from his earliest artistic experiences and his surrealist creations down to the works of the last years of his life.
The Old Town. Discover the network of medieval streets, many of them named after a particular trade which practiced there, a reminder of the medieval guilds. They are now still full of life, with cafes and shops that have kept the commercial spirit of the area.
El Call – Jewish Quarter. One of the best well-preserved medieval Jewish quarters in Europe, with beautiful old buildings and narrow streets. The Jews lived there for 6 centuries ruled by their own laws until they were expelled together with all the Jews in Spain in 1492. Walk up to the city walls that offer some lovely views.
Houses on the Onyar River. Rows of red, orange and yellow buildings line along the banks of the river Onyar, with several bridges that connect the old town with the rest of Girona.
Cathedral of Girona. Arising at the top of a hill is the Cathedral of Girona, with 90 steps to get to and a mixture of styles that illustrate the long history of the building. It has a baroque entrance, a Romanesque cloister and the wides Gothic nave in the world. Do not miss the Creation Tapestry found in the museum, a Romanesque embroidered tapestry.
