Casa Museu Castell Gala Dali, Pubol, 1

We have been qualified Dali fans for some time. We both like the humorous stuff, and I particularly like the art history/parody stuff. We have been to the Teatro/Museu in Figueres twice (http://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2010/02/gala-and-salvidor-dali-teatro-and-museu.html, http://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2010/02/more-dali.html, http://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2010/02/not-enough-dali.html, http://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2013/03/teatro-y-museu-dali-in-figueres.html) and to the couple's seaside home at Portlligat (http://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2013/04/casa-dali-at-portlligat-1.htmlhttp://roadeveron.blogspot.com.es/2013/04/casa-dali-at-portlligat-2.html). OK, maybe somewhat more than qualified. The third piece of the Dali triad is the medieval castle/fortified residence he bought for her as a retreat in the 60s. She is buried there and the castle housed his last studio, in the early 80s. She was his nearly life-long companion, muse, artistic and financial manager, and wife. It was a complicated relationship, no doubt, but he is unimaginable without her. In any case, our Dali set in Catalonia is complete.
Pubol is a pretty medieval hamlet, dating from the 11th century
