Old walkway to Portlligat

DISTANCE: 1,5km

DURATION: 20 min (one way)

DIFFICULTY: So easy

DESCRIPTION: Start from the Tourism Office and follow the coast road to the left until you reach Es Poal cove. Once there, climb up Miranda street until you get to the Camping Cadaqués. On the right of the campsite you will see the St. Baldiri's chapel, on the left of which there is a road that leads down to Portlligat (the fishing port of the town). Portlligat is where is situated the Dalí's House Museum.

The Portlligat Museum-House was Salvador Dalí’s only fixed abode, the place in which he usually lived and worked up till 1982 when, upon Gala’s death, he took up residence at Púbol Castle.

Salvador Dalí moved to Portlligat in 1930, into a small fisherman’s hut, attracted by the landscape, the light and the isolation of the place. Taking that initial construction as a basis, he created his house little by little over the course of forty years.
