storage lockers at figueres ?
Is there any storage lockers at figueres railway station?
Re: storage lockers at figueres ?
It certainly does not look at all likely.
Am looking at the Spanish railways infrastructure organization web site : ADIF who display information about railway stations and facilities etc.
Possible that there may be lockers at the coach station (assuming there is a building). It will be called "CONSIGNA".
Travel Tips for Figueres
The facade of the Dali museum
I'm not sure why they chose to put the eggs on top of the museum, but this is the exterior. The entrance is behind and to the right. Very few people seem to be out and about on the streets, but the museum is packed. Even though this museum is great, they still have you exit through the gift shop. Aroudnd the museum you can find an assortment of restaurants selling microwaved paella and various souveniers. It might be nice to stroll through a few for a few minutes.
All languages are welcome
The Salvador Dali Museum is equipped to handle a huge number of languages, offering brochures and audio tours in many languages. Greek, Hebrew, Bulgarian, Korean and many more are represented. In my opinion, if a person has managed to arrive at the Salvador Dali museum, they will be able to enjoy it.
Cathedral of Saint Peter
This is Cathedral in which is in 1904 young Dali christened. Come inside and take a look about her interior.
This Cathedral is also Figueres parish church. Probably raised on the site of a former early Christian church, the oldest parts still preserved date from the 10th-11th century in part of wall on the north side with an embrasure at the foot of the belltower. Towards the end of the 14th century King Peter the Ceremonious ordered the construction of a new church in Figueres, and a single-nave Gothic-style church was raised over the Romanesque building, with no cross vault or apse aisle. This is retained to this day in its original form up to where the apse began. In the 18th century a cross vault and polygonal apse were added to it, replacing the former Gothic sanctuary. At the end of the 19th century, in 1895, the dome was rebuilt following a plan by the architect Josep Azemar i Pont. At the start of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 the church sustained serious damage when it was set on fire and some of its finest features knocked down. Between 1941 and 1948, however, it was rebuilt with stone blocks, the cross vault crowned with an octagonal cupola, following the Gothic style of the former nave and thus achieving a unified, sober and imposing whole.
Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre-Museum was built upon the remains of the former Figueres theatre. It contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), from his earliest artistic experiences and his creations within the Surrealist movement down to the works of the last years of his life. Some of the most outstanding works on exhibition there are: Port Alguer, Cadaqués (1924), The Spectre of Sex Appeal (1932), Soft Self-Portrait with Fried Bacon (1941), Poetry of America – The Cosmic Athletes (1943), Galarina (1944-45), Basket of Bread – Rather Death than Shame (1945), Leda Atòmica (1949) and Galatea of the Spheres (1952).
A must see for any fans of Salvador Dali's work. Entrance is (at the time of writing) 10 Euros with discounts for groups, senior citizens and children. Under 9's free.
It is in the volumes that the imagination and eccentricity of the creator is more present in all the museum.
The forms, their position, the organization of specific looking points... that's Dali.
