Salvador Dalí often visited Cadaqués in his childhood, and later kept a home in Port Lligat, a small village on a bay next to the town. A summer holiday here in 1916, spent with the family of Ramon Pichot is seen as especially important to Dalí's artistic career. Other notable artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Hamilton, Albert Ràfols-Casamada, Antoni Pitxot, Henri-François Rey, Melina Mercouri and Maurice Boitel also spent time here. Cadaqués is mentioned in the story "Tramontana" by Gabriel García Márquez.
Although i don't like the crowded beach in the summer, i enjoy it very much when the night comes or also during the grey days of the fall/winter. It can be any beach, and it's amazing to be there with friends to drink some beers, have a picnic and it becomes much cooler when i have this gem only 10 min walking from my home.
Former headquarters of the "Textil Algodonera Foundation", an emblematic building of the XIX century of neoclassical style that is a reference in the city of Barcelona. They have an excellent restaurant where you can make a good brunch and a terrace ideal for summer evenings, I usually go to design when I need tranquility and that they treat me with professionalism, ideal also for an informal meeting or a drink with a good friend.
