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 (,,, and to the couple's seaside home at Portlligat ( 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

In English, too
