In the heart of a small valley in Baix Empordà, set on a hill, you'll find La Pera, a town that despite the passage of time preserves the mediaeval charm of its streets. Its main attraction, the castle, is situated just over a kilometre away from the town. Empordà's most famous artist, Salvador Dalí, fell in love with this fortification and gave it as a gift to his beloved Gala to make her “the queen of the castle”. This castle is now the Gala-Dalí Castle House-Museum and is well worth a visit (take note: book ahead!). Explore the private rooms of this residence where the couple spent long periods and the crypt, which is the resting place of the painter's muse.
