COSTA BRAVA – DALI CYCLING TOUR
Ride in Costa Brava and enter “The Dalí Triangle” with us, the three most mythical places where Salvador Dali spent his life.
The Costa Brava – Dali Cycling tour starts from beautiful Castelló d’Empúries, capital of the Empúries county during the Middle Ages. We have 4 days to discover the northern part of the province of Girona. We will ride to the easternmost point of the Iberian peninsula, the Cap de Creus. Visit the picturesque village of Cadaqués where Dalí spent his childhood Summers´ and Portlligat, where he lived as an adult and painted some of his famous landscapes. Amazing rides with spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and the border with France.
We will trace the history of this region: from the first civilization to live here, the Ibers, and the visit from Greeks and Romans who arrived to Spain and founded the town of Emporion. Visit one of the wineries of DO Empordà and the Dalí Museum in Figueres.
Halfway in the tour, we head to the city of Girona. Feel at home at the Hotel Historic or Hotel Nord 1901 and experience rides the pros train on. Mare de Déu del Mont and Rocacorba are the nearby climbs they test before going to Le Tour de France.
Then on to Gala’s castle home in the countryside village of Púbol. This 11th century castle was bought by Dali in 1969 for his wife Gala, for whom he had an undying love. He decorated the house for her in his own bizarre fashion and apparently was only able to visit here with written permission.
