Left Vilanova for Figueres. This involved catching 2 trains with the bikes. First train to Barcelona was fantastic. Space for bikes and not crowded at all. The change of platforms in Barcelona was also very simple. Then after waiting 45min for the train it was suddenly cancelled. And the next train was 1h45min later. So we had lunch in the station.

Arrived at Figueres and checked into our apartment. (A large private room with en-suite in a house ). Then quickly headed off to see the Dalí museum. Due to the train being so late we had very little time but managed a quick viewing in all the rooms. Fabulous museum/art gallery and definitely deserved more time.

Investigated the town a little more and had a (typical) late Spanish dinner. We are now adapted to going out for dinner at 21:15 or later, just as we have our last night in Spain. Ate in a main square watching the activities around. We both really liked this town! Clean, interesting and arty, with a sophisticated old town feel.
