Falling in love with dazzling beauty of Jewels- Salvador Dali. Apr 02, 2010
A bit dashing title, but it is true. If you love Jewels, but you are not attracted by Tiffany's or any other plain Jewel arts, then Salvador Dali is yours. I first saw the exhibition catalogue of Salvador Dali in 1984 when I was a littel boy, and since then, I always admired the talent of Salvador Dali. When you are in Spain, and especially near Barcelona, Figueres is a just good one day trip includng Girona. I will write about Girona later, but this Salvador Dali museum and his Jewel museum just next to it are the exquisite quality. Considering that it is located in 2.5 hours north of Barcelona by bus, you can almost reach to the Pyrennes and take the picture of mountains, close to southern France border.Actually you will see lots of French people and janitors can use French from my experience.
Not only the Dali museum is an extraordinary one, the Jewel art is showing such a unique collection, which you will not see in any other museum in such a scale or quality. Refelecting the point, Dali Museum is only second to El Prado in Madrid in the number of visitors in Spain, but thinking that El Prado has a whole collection of all art pieces,this single artist is obviously showing off his glamour without hesitation.
One good way is to take a day trip package to Girona/Figueres. There are shops and snack bar next to museum, and usually it will take 4 hours to see whole Dali museum and Jewel art but could take longer. If you are a fan of Dali, this package might be too short, but if you see it with measurable timetable, this is the one you want to choose.
Some pieces are spellbound as they are moving even, and some of them are surrealistic, giving you a life-long experience in Catalunya.Please enjoy photo shots and share your feelings with more of travelers !
