Cadaqués was on the very top of that list. It's got to do with my fascination of this guy:
Mr Salvador Dalí. I have always loved his surrealistic work, and I really wanted to see this town where he spent his summer holidays as a child, and where he later settled down (well, almost: he built a house just outside of Cadaqués). It was supposed to be so so beautiful and I was getting very curious to see it.
Other artists such as Pablo Ruiz Picasso, Joan Miró, Antoni Pitxot, René Magritte, Federico García Lorca, and more also spent time there. The atmosphere, the bars and the restaurants are so artsy and I loved it!
It is a small whitewashed fisher-village, and just plain idyllic and beautiful, with narrow, cobbled streets and a very laid-back feel.
It's got a few beaches
And lovely restaurants with food so tasty, and much cheaper than in Barcelona
|Fresh, so fresh fish! Lubina, and tuna.|
Great views from the church
And also so beautiful at night!
The town is located on Costa Brava, the coast north of Barcelona, a couple hours drive away, and quite close to the French border.
I definitely want to come back here!
I also visited Port Lligat, and the house of Salvador Dalí which is now a museum. I might tell about that in another post!
