About the tour

We will start the tour with a historical introduction to the city. The Figueres area was already populated by the Iberians more than 2000 years ago, until the Romans arrived. Even so, much of the center of Figueres developed during medieval times. Did you know that the inventor of the submarine was born in this city? We will start by talking about Narcís Monturiol, the main monument on the Rambla. Then we will visit some of the most emblematic and important modernist buildings in the center, such as the new Theater and other important family houses. From this point we will go to the liveliest part of the city, the heart of the historic center. There we will see the old Church and, next to it, the imposing Dalí Museum, which had been an old theater and had a tragic outcome. Find out why the painter decided to locate his museum in that exact place! Through some narrow streets and squares that had been old market places, we will arrive at the Town Hall area. From there we will go to the two houses in which Salvador Dalí was born and lived, and we will finish the tour. Do not miss it!
