Castell Gala Dali – Púbol, Catalunya…

le château de Gala Dali à Pubol, Catalunya date du 11ème siècle et il a été offert par Salvador à sa femme en 1968, comme un endroit pour son repos et son refuge… après la mort de Gala en 1982, Dali a déménagé dans le “castell” qui est devenu son dernier atelier et le mausolée de sa muse.

N.B. histoire vraie… Dali à Gala:
– Je vais t’offrir un château gothique, Gala… vas-tu l’accepter?
– oui, à une condition: viens me rendre visite seulement par invitation écrite!
– je suis d’accord, Gala, puisque j’accepte tout d’habitude, chaque fois qu’il y a des conditions. C’est le principe même de l’amour courtois! 🙂
