Salvador Dali was born in the city of Figueres in northern Catalonia, Spain and was responsible for the
creation of the Dali Theatre-Museum in the city that opened in 1974.Dali is also buried in a crypt below
the stage.
I knew that as we were in the area  visit to the museum and also to Portlligat to the house were he spent many years.

This quote from Dali does indeed sum up the visitors experience” I want my museum to be a single block,
a labryinth, a great surrealist object.It will be totally theatrical museum.The people who come to see it will
leave with the sensation of having a theatrical dream”, I think he succeeded.

The Portlligat Museum-House is the house that Dali lived and worked in from 1930 to to 1982 .

The house is fascinating and gives you a small peak into the lives of Salvador and Gala.

    So fabulously cool! Whenever I'm asked the classic question, who would I invite to a fictional dinner party, Dali springs to mind a potentially great guest to invite. You just know he'd keep things interesting! :)xoxo ♥ Jessica
