Gala–Dalí Castle (Pubol Castle) Tours

The southernmost part of the Dali Triangle (completed by the Teatre-Museu Dali in Figueres and the Casa Museu Salvador Dali in Cadaques), the Gala-Dali Castle (Castell de Pubol) was a gift from artist Salvador Dali to his muse and wife, Gala. Their former home is now her final resting place—a surrealist Gothic and Renaissance building surrounded by shady gardens and quirky fountains, and open for the public to explore.


The Basics

The mustachioed artist ranks among Barcelona’s most famous former residents, and as such, many visitors to the Catalan capital set out on guided day trips to the three corners of the Dali Triangle, including the Gala-Dali Castle in Costa Brava. Those who visit independently can choose a basic entrance ticket or admission and a guided tour in English.


Things to Know Before You Go

  • The castle is a must-visit for art lovers.
  • The museum offers a free left-luggage service.
  • Most of the rooms within the castle are wheelchair accessible except Gala’s bathroom, the crypt, and the Les Gales de Gala exhibition.
  • Flash photography and the use of tripods are not permitted within the museum.


How to Get There

The castle is set 78 miles (125 kilometers) northeast of Barcelona. Since it isn’t very well connected by public transportation, the most convenient way to visit is on a guided tour with included round-trip transportation. Those who wish to visit independently can catch a bus from Girona or Palafrugell to Cruilla de la Pera and walk to the museum from the stop on the C66. It’s also possible to take the train from Girona to Flaca and catch a taxi from the station to the museum. Travelers with a car will find free parking at the entrance to Pubol village.


When to Get There

Since the Castle of Pubol sees fewer visitors than its more popular counterpart in Figueres, crowds are rarely a problem. The museum is typically open from 10am to 6pm but closes early from August to December (at 5pm) and hosts extended hours from mid-June to mid-September (until 8pm). The museum closes entirely from mid-January to mid-March.


Touring the Dali Triangle

While it’s possible to see all three points of the Dali Triangle in a single day, it makes for one very long day, and you may feel rushed at each of the three attractions. For the best experience, take two days to explore the Triangle, or if you’re pressed for time, choose a tour that visits two of the three—typically Teatre-Museu Dali in Figueres and either Pubol Castle or Casa Museu Salvador Dali in Cadaqu
