RUTA 4: Figueres


Apse of the monastery of Santa Maria

 

Dalí's work 'Leda atómica'
Capital of the region of Alto Ampurdán. Its position in the heart of the region and being a privileged passing location between Spain and France have made this municipality a very wealthy location, fruit of the development of its commercial sector for decades.
When in Figueres, as well as strolling around the "el rovell de l'ou" (egg yolk), the commercial area in the centre, tourists can visit the Dalí Museum (where those who love surrealism will not be disappointed), the Toy Museum (with an interesting collection of modernist items) and the Museum of el Ampurdán (local painting).

Many neoclassical buildings rise up in the Rambla and there are also unique examples of modernist architecture such as the old municipal abattoir (currently a cultural centre), the Artisan Casino and the Teatro Jardín (Garden Theatre).

Other interesting visits are the Museum of Naive Art, on the way out of the city, and the stunning Castle of San Fernando, the largest construction in Catalonia.
