Teatre-Museu Dalí

The old municipal theatre, built in 1850 by the neo-Classical architect José Roca i Bros, was renovated in 1968 to house the spectacular and extravagant Dalí museum. The simplification of the interior rooms and the construction of an immense glass cupola (by Emilio Pérez Piñero) inspired Dalí, who embellished the building with giant eggs, bread rolls on the façade to imitate the shells on the Casa de las Conchas in Salamanca, basins and gilt models.
