Create an itinerary including Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol)
Dalí and his wife Gala lived in Dali-Gala Castle Museum-House (Castell de Pubol), which has been open to the public since 1996. The artist’s eccentric additions complement the building’s medieval origins. With documentation dating back to the 11th century, the structure’s glory years fell between the late 14th and early 15th centuries, and Dalí bought it nearly in ruins in 1969. Gala remains buried here. Take a look at Dalí’s cars; note that even geniuses make pedestrian purchases like a Datsun sometimes. Plan extra time for arriving to the town and finding the museum. Consider booking a tour in your preferred language in advance.

  • Went here for my first time and was very impressed. The castle was really unique- like nothing I ever have been to before. The outdoor garden was unique and peaceful! We went early in the morning at 10 and had no wait in line!
  • Gala’s mausoleum. Stop here if you are around Girona to learn about Dali’s latest period of his art and life. This is one of the three locations you should visit to track his life. Figueres and Port Lligat the other two. Nice little town to spend and afternoon.
