I thoroughly recommend having friends in Barcelona. It lets you see a side to the city that is only usually known to people who live there. It also means you can see places close to the Catalan capital. On my last visit, my private guides took me to one of the most surprising towns on the Costa Brava: Cadaques. It is a beautiful place, about an hour and a half by car from Barcelona. I am not surprised that Dali chose to hide away there with Gala.
