Cadaques Museum

Cadaques is a small coastal town located on the Cape of Creus.Es the easternmost town of the Costa Brava and also of the Iberian peninsula. Surrounded by the mountain ranges of the Cabo de Creus, Cadaques has always been quite isolated, in fact the first access road was not built until the end of the 19th century, being so far the sea your single point of access. The road that connects Roses with Cadaques passes through the neck of the mountainous Perafina and despite being quite uncomfortable by its narrowness and numerous curves, is worth exploring it and enjoy the stunning views it offers, both Roses and Cadaques. Isolation of Cadaques has certainly preserved much of its local colour: white houses’m gradually until it reaches the sea. Among the narrow streets we find the Church of Santa Maria or the Cadaques Museum, exhibiting regularly almost always dedicated to Salvador Dali exhibitions. The figure of Dali is closely linked to Cadaques and on one of its bays, Port Lligat, is It is the House-Museum of the well-known surrealist painter.

It was the tranquility and beauty of this landscape which attracted the painter to Port Lligat, and still today breathes peace, despite the large number of tourists who come to visit the House of the famous artist. Its yesteryear important industries of salted fish maintains the production of various products, emphasizing the anchovy of Cadaques. But the main activity is without doubt the tourism. Beauty, isolation and tranquility of the area, together with the legacy of Salvador Dali attracting increasingly more visitors, making it difficult to find accommodation in the high seasons of summer and Easter.
