Figueres

Located just across the border from France in the easternmost point of Spain, Figueres is a Catalan city which, when translated literally, means "Fig Tree" in the local Catalan language (a language spoken mainly only by older Catalans - it was banned under Franco's rule).

The city has an attractive, compact Old Town as well as some beautiful buildings and interesting museums. Its most famous attraction is the Salvador Dali Theatre Museum, dedicated to the work of the city's favourite son. The museum is housed in an old theatre which Dali himself bought and converted, having already achieved international acclaim for his work.

The Castle of San Ferran in Figueres is recognised as the largest castle in Europe and has had a chequered history. It has served as a prison, was occupied by Napoleon and was the last remaining outpost of Republican Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Franco bombed the town and castle as he narrowed in on victory.

“well worth visiting this area, hotel in a lovely bay and table service, although breakfast self service and no hot food. Excellent tour manager, Carly. Arrived at both ends of the tour at about 8.30. I don’t think it would be suitable if you have walking difficulties. Spent approx 15 hours on coaches, a couple of long tour days. We didn’t have a front balcony room but they looked very nice. Some lucky souls were upgraded to sea view rooms. First class customer service (Guoda) from Great Rail Journeys to sort out a problem I had. One downside is that the train carriages were on two levels and both ways we were on the bottom level so could not see much as they build banks to stop the noise of the trains.
