Beach communities usually inspire people to relax and spend more time with their families, but Cadaqués in the Costa Brava has a history of inspiring great artists, the most notable of which is Salvador Dali.
Dali lived nearby and spent many summers walking the white washed streets of this classic Mediterranean town. Dali wasn’t alone though many other artists sought inspiration here including Picasso, Duchamp, Miro and Pichot. My favorite thing to do isn’t in Cadaqués proper, instead it’s in nearby Port Lligat: Dali’s House and Museum.
Dali’s brilliance, flamboyance and eccentricities are on full display inside this most unusual home. Michelin man installations, chairs made to look like giant lips and much more are just some of the many reasons to make this a must visit site.
