Figueres is the birthplace of Salvador Dali and home to the Dali Museum, is very close to the historical medieval city of Girona, it offers great food, and beaches near by.
My apartment is right in the centre of the city. You can easily access the shopping area, museum and the great variety of cafes & restaurants. I am literally around the corner of the food market and 5 minutes of the train and bus station.
It is full of light and you can see the Dali museum from the window.
