Salvadore Dali ...... one of my favourite artists ... lived in that area and I think had a home in peniscola which is open to the public
Went to the Dali gallery in Florida and it was stunning, St Petersburg iirc

Then you would like the permanent Dali exhibition in Barcelona! An absolutely talented madman

Thought it was fab when we visited!

Combine that with the Familia Sagrada church (Gaudi) and it is sure bliss!

I could quite happily live in Barcelona if finances permitted.

I agree

I think he's one of the Masters!

You will love Barcelona, but try not to go during July/August. Hotels are very expensive and it is extremely busy and very hot.

Their underground train system is brilliant too. We parked the car in the hotel parking and went everywhere by train or walked.

Where do you lot go? My solicitor says she always goes somewhere cold!!

I would explore Spain perhaps stay in a 5 star hotel on the coast or there is even UK, I hope to come back for holidays to Lake District/Yorkshire or Northwest where I'm from. Mind you its the cost of the UK though it is expensive to holiday here.
