Salvador Dali – Figueres – Part One

Just a couple of hours from Barcelona lies the town of Figueres (just under 35,000 people, pleasant enough on its own but monumental in that this is where Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí is located, and where the man himself was born). And here in the museum, in one of the lower rooms, with art about, lies his crypt.

The building, once an old theatre but now dramatic beyond all expectations.
