Literary Landmarks: Salvidor Dali House

Salvidor Dali House This house in Port Lligat, Catalonia, Spain, was Salvador Dalí’s abode where he usually lived and worked until 1982. It began as small fisherman's shack which he rented in 1930 and later purchased. As he himself defined it, it was "like a real biological structure [...]. Each new pulse in our life had its own new cell, its room." The resulting form is the current labyrinthine structure which spreads out around in a succession of spaces linked by narrow corridors, slight level changes and blind passageways. Today it is a museum dedicated to his work.

For more information click here: Dali Museum, or click here for books by Salvadaor Dali and here for Art History.
