Together with our friends from Cafemiffy we visited these famous and beautiful places in Costa Brava. It was a hard journey that started early in the morning.

Our first stop was Figueres were the Dali museum is located. It was the first time for both of us, so we decided to hire a professional guide for the visit.

It was well worth of it because Dali’s art complexity and all the weird things that you would miss is you’re not a real fan or just it’s your first visit.

From there we moved to Cadaques were we visited their center and we had Paella. A very nice dinner but may be too much Paella for us. The road from L’Escala to Cadaques is very curvy and you will need at least 30 minutes to arrive there. During summer time the traffic there is heavy and there’s no so much parking space (expect to park quite far, if you can park).

Next destination, Dali’s house in Port Lligat. I was there once sailing and I must admit that Dali knew about nice spots. He built a –surrealist house- joining several small fisherman houses. We were lucky because it’s closed on January. It was the last day…

Weather wasn’t fine and a big storm with heavy rain and wind surprised us. Well, this is another “nice” attraction of this area close to Cap de Creus.

If you want to see some pictures you can go here, but I really recommend visiting it.

This is what you just see when entering inside

Almost no day light, bad weather…

– should we return home, I asked my father.
– Surely not Miffa this is perfect for visiting Cap de Creus’ lighthouse.

He was right but it wasn’t nice outside. Now I know why sailors are afraid to cross this Cape with heavy “Tramuntana” wind.
