A hike in Port Lligat and a day in Cadaques

After an incredible tour through the home and gardens of the surrealist artist Salvador Dali (Casa Dali is the home on the left in the photo below) we walk along the shore, checking out so many cool shells and sea creature skeletons.

We walk across the bay to see the house from afar, there is a big blue box in the water directly across the bay from Dali’s house and we wonder what might be in it… we then continue up and down short cliffs to small beaches, we have the bay to ourselves!

Image

We take a path off a beach and follow along a path of stones, down stone stairs leading to caves cut into the cliff face, the caves can’t be accessed because they are filled with crazy crashing waves, but they are nice to look at.

Image

We go back up the stairs and see a stone wall with a door cut out, the trail leads to the door and we walk through, reaching a cliff overlooking the sea.

Quite the little hike! The trail ends at this blue gate so we walk back towards Casa Dali and then back into the town of Cadaques.

Image

The town gets the nickname “Kittyques” from me that day because there are so many cats, everywhere! There are 6 cats in the photo above, 4 more that are out of the frame. We keep seeing kitties everywhere and it’s pretty delightful! There is a cat sanctuary in town so the cats are well taken care of.

Yep there are plenty of pups too, this guy was hanging out watching the waves with us as we had our coffee.

Image

It was sad to leave this idillic town, but the following day we had a last look around then hopped on the bus to the next town…
