Figueres, Spain is a city in the province of Girona, in northern Spain.
Here is how this guy describes Figueres:
“The city of Figueres, Spain is as homely as a mule’s butt. Narrow streets choked in a fog of exhaust fumes, scooters without mufflers scream through the city with a sound that can liquefy your brainstem, the parks are ugly and dangerous and guys stand in doorways doing nothing all day aside from laying mad dog looks on tourists that pass by. Quite frankly, the place sucks. If it weren’t for the fact that Salvador Dalí, one of the 20th century’s most talented, egomaniacal and prolific artists wasn’t birthed there and his Teatre-Museu Dalí weren’t located there, Figueres probably wouldn’t even have a train station, which makes it mercifully possible to zip into town from Barcelona to see the museum without actually having to spend the night there.”
We actually liked Figueres, but he’s right in that there isn’t much to see or do other than visit the Dalí Museum (check out our photos from the Dalí Museum).
