Figueres We went to Figueres to visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum. Here is the back entrance. The Dalí Theatre-Museum has to be seen as a whole, as the great work of Salvador Dalí, since it was conceived of and designed by the artist in order to offer visitors a genuine experience that would take them into his entrancing and unique world. Figueres is located two hours by train North of Barcelona.
