    Has anybody ever visited this museum in their Motorhome? We would love to go on our way south in January but would like to park and overnight nearby.

    Thanks.

    Have visited the museum twice, but never in the motorhome. I always had a toad. I would imagine its very difficult to park a motorhome nearby. Great place though and the jewellery museum next door is something not to be missed.

    There is a small campsite a few miles from Figueres - I'll try and find the name later. We went in our camper in August a few years ago but didn't have any issue parking.

    We used a supermarket car park listed in camperstop a few weeks ago on an overnight. Not sure how far from museum but two vans there overnight.

    Well worth a visit although we stayed at Camping Rifort, Estartit and rode up on the bike. There are a couple of car parks not too far away and some street parking but not sure how you would cope with the m/home though. Also worth a visit is Cadaque to the NE, where Dali lived. A pretty little port with a good, winding access road and a car park on the edge of town.

    There are a couple of camp sites in El Port de La Selva which isn't too far away from memory. I reckon old Dali was a bit of a perv on the qt:xrofl::xrofl::xrofl:

    Thanks all. I will have a look at nearby campsites as that sounds like the best plan :xThumb:
