How to get there

The lowest round-trip air fare between Boston and Barcelona at press time was $506 on Delta. Port Lligat is about 100 miles north of Barcelona.

Where to stay

Hotel Restaurant La Plaça
Sant Esteve 17 17462 Madremanya, Girona

A fine base for a Dalí tour, La Plaça is a 14th-century farmhouse converted into an inn with a superb restaurant. It's in the village of Madremanya, small and peaceful, a good retreat after a Dalí day. Rooms from about $110.

Where to eat

Hotel Restaurant La Plaça
Madremanya's isolation means dinner alternatives are few. The multi-course, fixed-price dinner is about $45.
La Farinera
Passatge Farinera Teixidor 4 Girona

Housed in an old Modernista flour factory, it offers a fine lunch for about $11.

Hotel Mas de Torrent
17123 Torrent, Girona

For a splurge, try dinner at the restaurant in this hotel, a member of the Relais & Chateaux group. Fixed-price meals from about $75.
