The surrealism of Dalí and the medieval town of Girona (Jewish heritage also) with a private licensed guide


"Je suis le surrealism" ("I am the surrealism") - Dalí said.
Let me tell you that this is the most unusual museum I have never seen. Forget the concept of a museum as an exhibition of pictures. Dali wanted to surprise who visited his theatre-museum and I can tell you that a lot of people have confess me "it's the first museum that has surprised me"
Going inside it is like being inside his mind. He liked things with double effects: making people see one thing that hides another fact. My objective is for you to see this hidden reality. It's impossible to be indifferent after visiting this museum.

We will have lunch at Girona, where History and Legend come together.
In Girona we will visit the old Jewish Synagogue with the recent discovered Mikveh, inheritance from the large Jewish Community that settled here; the Girona Cathedral, with the biggest Gothic Nave in the world; and the Arab Baths to see how people lived in the Middle Ages. We will also walk along the Rambla of Girona and the Archeological Garden.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great day with Francesc. We moved ahead of the line at the museum and had a terrific tour of the Dali museum. We learned so much about Dali, his art, life and times. We then went to Bessau the walled mid evil city. We wanted to visit the Mikva and Francesc worked so hard to get the key when the person who was responsible for the key did not meet us. Instead of giving up he persisted and succeeded. Wonderful guide!
