Description

Cadaqués is a town in the Alt Empordà comarca, in Girona province, Catalonia, Spain. It is on a bay near the Cap de Creus peninsula, on the Costa Brava of the Mediterranean Sea. It is only a two-and-a-half hour drive from Barcelona, therefore it is very accessible and not only attracts tourists, but people who want a second house to have on the weekends and summers. In 2002 it had a population of 2,612 people.

Artist Salvador Dalí often visited here in his childhood, and later kept a home in Port Lligat, a small bay next to the village. Other notable artists, including Mei Fren (see his commanding charcoals of the nineteenth century Cadaqués beleaguered by a winter tramontan in the Cadaqués museum. He was the first artist to live in Cadaqués and gave the town many of his works and a marble top table on which he sketched many of its turn of the century fishermen), Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, 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.
