Figueres and Girona

We could not get enough of Catalunya. After gorging ourselves on  Food and Art in Barcelona  and slowing down in  tranquil Cadaques we visited Figueres and Girona on our way back to Barcelona. The bus took us from Cadaques to Figueres.  From the bus terminal we went to the city square and walked to Dali’s museum.

Dali himself commissioned this museum to himself before his death.  Surreal, madcap, self absorbed and totally convinced of his own genius, Dali’s works are colorful and lively.

We went in the morning about 10am to the Dali museum and it was already fairly crowded. People could not get enough of this mad genius.

Aftee lunch we boarded the train and went to Girona. We spent our last night in Catalunya in Girona. Girona is very similar to Barcelona with it’s historic alleys and old buildings.
