This City is the capital of the Alt d’Emporda area and has a population of 40,000 people. It is home to one of the World’s most popular museums, the Teatre-Museu Dali, which was created by Dali who spent his final days here and is buried in the crypt. It is a must for visitors to the area; it is advisable to arrive early and be prepared to queue. Opening times are July-September 9:00-20:00, Oct-June 10:30-18:00.

The Rambla, a tree-lined boulevard built over a river bed in the 1930’s connects the old and new parts of the town. Various café-bars fringe the Rambla and there are markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
