About the Museum

The Portlligat Museum-House is the house (formerly a number of small fisherman's huts) in Port Lligat, Catalonia, Spain where Salvador Dalí often lived and worked from 1930 to 1982, until upon the death of his wife Gala Dalí, he took up residence at Púbol Castle.

The house has a labyrinthine structure which from one point of departure, the Bear Lobby, spreads out and winds around in a succession of zones linked by narrow corridors, slight changes of level, and blind passageways.

All the rooms have windows of different shapes and proportions framing the same landscape that is a constant point of reference in Dalí’s work: the Portlligat bay.
