Cadaqués, an artists’ town

December 7, 2015

Cadaqués is one of these places which are worth visiting after the summer season. Wandering the empty and windy streets of this little coastal town, you can feel the true artistic spirit in the air.

It’s not easy to get there. You need to drive down the curvy, quite narrow roads for about half an hour. Even though I don’t normally suffer from the motion sickness, this time I felt really dizzy.

But once you’re there, it’s fine. The beauty of Cadaqués will make you stop and look at every corner of the town and forget about your dizziness.

Cadaqués in December |
Cadaqués is a city of artists. Salvador Dalí often visited the town in his childhood and later on it played an important role in his career. Also artists like Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Walt Disney and Marcel Duchamp, to name just a few, stayed there.

Art is literally everywhere.

Even the cat looked artistic.

I need to get one of these pots for my balcony.

I imagined myself staying in one of those white houses during winter. With a fire place (it does get cold!) on, jazz played from a vinyl player and my computer. I’m sure that writing my guidebook about London would be so much easier!
