Two Christmas Treats

Margaret Mann and Stephen Martyn get up close to Salvador Dali

On Christmas Eve we got off a coach in the seaside town of Cadaquez, beside a statue of none other than one of Catalonia’s most famous sons, Salvador Dali. A twenty-minute walk later, through the back streets, having followed signs with a curly moustache to Casa Dali, we arrived in the pretty fishing village of Portlligat. Down by the seashore were several white cottages, one of which had been Dali and his wife Gala’s home.
