Situated at the centre of the Alt Emporda to the north of Catalonia, Figueres boasts stunning landscapes and richly embroidered history and culture. Just 15 minutes in from the sea, Figueres sits at the foot of the Pyrenees and is surrounded by three national parks. The Dali Museum and theatre is an astonishing place both inside and out, as are the toy museum of Catalonia, l’Empordà, and the largest fortress in Europe, the Château of Sant Ferran.
If you would like to discover the secrets of Dali’s surrealist universe, join a guided tour of La Figueres de Dali, Nadali o la Guerre Civile. The International Circus Festival, Acoustic Music Festival and the Comedy Festival of Figueres fill the town with laughter and song. And if gastronomy is your thing, Figueres has a wonderful mixture of traditional and creative cuisine with ingredients from the sea and mountain taking pride of place, as well as great wine from the Empordà AOC: DO Empordà. Figuerès awaits!
