As your guide takes you through the narrow cobbled streets of the old part of the city you will learn about some of the legends and myths of Girona. Who were the witches of the Cathedral? Who was the Lioness of Girona and how did she shape the history and culture of Girona?
From here, you'll head to the town of Figueres, where Salvador Dalí was born. The Dalí Theatre-Museum, built on the site of the old theatre of Figueres, opened its doors in 1974. Today, it is the second-most visited museum in Spain, next to El Prado, and contains the largest collection of Dalí's works, with over 1,500 exhibits starting from his earliest creations through his surrealist period and up to the last years of his life. The Dalí Theatre-Museum also contains a number of works by other artists selected by Dalí, who conceived and designed everything in the museum. His aim was to offer visitors an incomparable visual experience and the opportunity to understand his fascinating world.
