The Dali House museum in Cadaqués

Salvator Dali lived in this charming house in Portlligat, near the village of Cadaqués.  It has been turned into a museum; small groups of 8 people (you need to make reservations) are taken through it and there is something to see in every corner.  He lived there for about 50 years with his wife, Gala.  It was a small shack when he first occupied it and it was extended numerous times.   

He himself described it: 
       “like a true biological structure [...]. Each new pulse in our life has its own new cell, a room”.

I think that is a pretty good description.  

Here are a few of the pictures that I took while wandering through. We got there by a 20 minute walk from our hotel in the village of Cadaqués - through the narrow streets and up the hill and then back down again.  It took us a bit longer to return since we got slightly lost.
