you are in Dali country in Spain. Along the coast of Costa Brava is Port Lligat,
a fishing village in Cadaques where Salvador Dali and his wife Gala resided.
Here you will find the breathtaking view of the

“Where, if not in my own town, should the most extravagant and solid of my work endure, where if not here?
The Municipal Theatre, or what remained of it, struck me as very appropriate, and for three reasons:
first, because I am an eminently theatrical painter;
second, because the theatre stands right opposite the church where I was baptised;
and third, because it was precisely in the hall of the vestibule of the theatre where I gave my first exhibition of painting.”

There are countless of other mediums of artwork that will astound you.
Aside from his numerous paintings are his bizarre sculptures and installations that show his unique vision.
