I had to do something with this,I'm so sorry, this is the first time I use my Iphone for the travel posts, and I'm not satisfied with the result, so I will revrite this, the visit at Gala and Salvador Dali's house in Portlligat is so exiting, the artist bought several fishermens houses, and made this laberintic home.They lived  there more or less permanently from 1930 until 1982 when Gala died, and the artist moved to the Pubol Castle.
Here the visit goes through their more private part of the residence, on the ground floor, and on the first floor the studio with lots of objects related with the artistic activity, and the outside areas dedicated to their public life.

You can feel the genius all the time, during the visit.

Hall o the bear.

Portlligat fishing boats, the day was a little between sun and rain, but the temperature was fine.

Here you can see the huge tripod, invented by Dali himself, and take a look at the floor, there is a groove so he could hoist his canvases up and down, and always sit on the same place painting.

This was a rich personal and professional visit, as a home designer I saw so many curious details, all the way the mix between old and new,the modern and the classic, the symmethry is often repeted, very inspiring indeed. I you are in the area of Barcelona or Gerona, take the trip here, and Cadaques is such a nice village
