Dalí Theatre and Museum

The beauty of the 19th-century Dalí Theatre-Museum lies partly in the fact that it was designed by Dali himself. Built on the ruins of the Spanish Civil War, this museum is an architectural jewel in the riverside town of Figueres, which also happens to be Dali's birthplace. The building is the very embodiment of Dali's bountiful imagination, and the red fortress like structure topped by giant egg sculptures and figurines, crowned by a geodesic dome, is surreal to say the least. Dali's showmanship shines through in the one-of-a-kind artworks showcased here like the Wind Palace Room, Mae West Room and the Palace of the Wind. The Dalí Joies jewelry collection, pieces designed by the Surrealist master himself, and created by master craftsmen, is truly exceptional and an homage to his talent. Dali himself is interred in the museum premises, an apt resting place for the iconic artist.
