“It’s obvious that other worlds exist, that’s certain; but,
as I’ve already said on many other occasions, these other
worlds are inside ours, they reside in the earth and precisely
at the centre of the dome of the Dalí Museum, which contains
the new, unsuspected and hallucinatory world of Surrealism.”

Figueras is synonymous with Dali – the two are inexorably linked
– and as I visited the centre, lit up for Nadal (Christmas),
Dali’s homage to his ville continues to influence residents;
as cows and butterflies roamed next to more traditional
decorations, suspended from balconies, echoing his bread-covered
palace of dreams.
