The road to Barcelona: three places you have to see

Are you planning a weekend in Barcelona with friends? On the Gaudi town road, stop in Catalonia, right at the heart of a stunning region, to make the most of the Spanish climate and discover the work of Dali.

The Dali theater-museum in Figueres

A totally unique site, this theater and museum is located a short way from the French-Spanish border. It is the second most visited museum of the country, after the Prado in Madrid. Discover the building's original architecture, inaugurated in 1974, as well as the large collection of artwork which chronicles the career of the most famous surrealist artist. From his childhood to his last work, Dali's entire life is captured. The location was chosen by the artist himself, as the city was dear to his heart. Catalonia: the country of Dali and art lovers!

The Costa Brava

A Spanish region which seems to have a perpetual holiday atmosphere, the Costa Brava is a must-see on the Barcelona road. Spread over a wide area, the region is full of charming villages with tiny harbors. A trip via the stunning creeks is as just as unforgettable as a sangria by sunset! Along the 200 kilometers of coastline, your only decision will be which fishing village you want to stay in. With 2500 hours of sunshine per year in this region, you can be sure that your holiday will be a success!
