With my bike I get on the train to the town of Figueres. Here I visit the Teatre-Museu Dalí in Figueres, in search of the world-famous surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. Cycling from Figueres to Girona, through a beautiful landscape!
Bringing a bike on the train in Spain
Cycling on dirt tracks, along rugged coastlines, through the woods and along medieval villages. For a week I discover all the different landscapes of Girona by bike. And today, my first day of cycling in Spain, I am seeking the world-famous surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. Just over 40 kilometers from Girona you will find Figueres, a town that houses the famous Teatre-Museu Dalí.
It is August and that means early in the morning it is already over 30 degrees. A return trip to Figueres might be a bit too ambitious. That’s why I take the train to Figueres and will cycle back to Girona. I buy my ticket at the Girona train station. Only € 4.10 for a single ticket to Figueres, and bringing the bike is free of charge. Even in the morning rush hour! In the train I take a look at the route I Paul from fietseningirona.nlmade. Paul has chosen a number of beautiful routes for the coming days. Today I make a trip from Figueres to Girona, through small medieval towns, a route that goes up and down the Catalan hills.
