Dalí museum & Girona (9h)
“Je suis le surrealism” (“I am the surrealism”) – Dalí said.
Let me tell you that this is the most unusual museum I have ever seen. Forget the concept of a museum as an exhibition of pictures. Dali wanted to surprise who visits his theater-museum and I can tell you that a lot of people confessed to me: “it’s the first museum that has surprised me”
Being inside it is like being inside his mind. He liked things with double effects: making people see one thing that hides another fact. My aim is to show you this hidden reality. It is impossible to be indifferent after visiting this museum of Figueres.
We will have lunch at Girona, where history and legend come together.
In Girona we will visit the old Jewish synagogue with the recent discovered Mikveh, inheritance from the large Jewish Community that settled here; the Girona Cathedral, with the biggest Gothic nave in the world; and the Arab Baths to see how people lived in the Middle Ages. We will also walk along the Rambla of Girona and the Archeological Garden.
- Extend this tour by an hour and a half to eat and see Besalú a medieval town with an important Jewish heritage (lunch in part of the river).
