Dali-Figueres: Salvador Dali, the great master of surrealism holds a great appeal for visitors to the Catalonia Pyrenees & Costa Brava. Figueres, Portlligat-Cadaques and Pubol (in l'Emporda Catalan region) form the three corners of Salvador Dali's Triangle.
Born in Figueres on May 11, 1904, Salvador Dali became one of the greatest geniuses of the surrealism and one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Its biography and its work extends on the major part of the century and suppose an attractive trip through the ideas, the culture and the art of the Western world.
Salvador Dali's loved the Emporda cuisine. Dali talks about cooking in his book 'The Secret Life' and even dedicated a cookery book to Gala 'Les diners de Gala' (Labor 1974), for which he painted 12 illustrations. The fact that Salvador Dali grew up amidst a family from l'Emporda partly explains his weakness for gastronomic delights and his insistence, from the age of six, to become a cook.
