When ever thinking about going to Barcelona, I always reminded myself that I would have to take an extra day to escape the city into a village not that far. Now I was there! So, asked around – it was possible to go by train, it would take couple of hours to get there. Got up early being determined to have the whole day for browsing around and went off to – Figueres!
The Dalí Theatre-Museum, in #Figueres, is the largest surrealistic object in the world. It is located in the the former Municipal Theatre, a 19th century construction destroyed at the end of the Spanish Civil War. On its ruins, Dalí decided to create his museum. Picture by @peter_s10 (Instagram)
Dali Theatre-Museum. In 1960, the artist bought the Municipal Theatre, a building that had been destroyed by fire at the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939, turning it into the largest surrealist object in the world. First he painted the building maroon and stuck loaves of bread to the walls (they are made from plaster). He positioned giant eggs along the rampart and planted cypress trees out front.
