In 1930 Salvador Dalí purchased a small fisherman’s hut in Portlligat. Over thirty years Salvador and Gala built and expanded, acquiring more land and huts. They lived there until Gala’s death in 1982.
As a fan of ephemera and Dali’s work I knew I’d like the house, but it was also a joy to find it very hospitable and cosy. A lot of fun and love has gone into it’s making and that magic is retained in what is now a museum.
“Portlligat is the place of production, the ideal place for my work. Everything fits to make it so: time goes more slowly and each hour has its proper dimension. There is a geological peacefulness: it is a unique planetary case”.
