• Travelers swoon when they visit Figueres, Spain

    2010-05-05

    For many vacationers who are seeking to explore Europe, Spain serves as an introduction to the old continent by providing a wealth of cultural sites, a colorful history and delectable local cuisine. While most visitors will opt for the more established tourist destinations like Madrid or Barcelona, travelers seeking a more intimate Spanish experience may want to head to the city of Figueres in Catalonia.

    Figueres is a small city in the Catalonia region, and the seat of the Girona Province as a whole. It is the birthplace of famous 20th century surrealist painter Salvador Dali, and boasts a uniquely Mediterranean flair due to its status as the last major town before the Spanish-French border.

    The city boasts a number of options for entertainment and enlightenment, the most notable of which is the Theatre Museu Gala Salvador Dali. This sizable museum once served as the painter's home and bears many of the unusual architectural and design features that one might expect from the man behind "the Persistence of Memory."

    More historically-minded travelers will want to visit the Castell de Sant Ferran, the largest castle in Europe that has historically served as a prison, home to Napoleon and a central meeting point for local merchants.
