Visions of Figueres : Spain

Cheap Ryanair flights to Barcelona arrive at the Girona airport, one hour north from Barcelona. From what I’ve heard, more people just hop on the bus to Barcelona upon arrival, without taking the time to see if there’s anything worthwhile in the area. There are a few things to do in the area, the most notable is Figueres, the Salvador Dali town. Girona is also worth a day, for its lovely old Jewish Quarter.

Figueres is a nice little town with two notable attractions. The first, ofcourse, is the Dali museum, which is an absolute must-do. I’ve been to some art museums around the world, is this is by far the funkiest most fun art museum I’ve been to. The second attraction, which I knew nothing about until I actually arrived in Figueres, is the Castell de Sant Ferran, the largest castle in Europe, and that’s saying allot already.

 

So, I give you my “Visions of Figueres”…
