“I’ll give you a medieval castle decorated by me”. And Dalí fulfilled his promise to Gala in 1970. However, she imposed three conditions: gold taps, elephants in the garden and written invitations each time Dalí wished to visit. She got everything she wanted. Noteworthy features include the Wagner busts in the garden, Gala’s collection of haute couture dresses, objects and furniture. Gala is buried here.

    The Procession of the Dance of Death of Verges is one of the few of its kind that has survived in Europe without interruption from its medieval origins. On the night of Holy Thursday this dance in procession recalls the hour of death with skeletons in a choreography accompanied by other people in black robes and torches that enlighten their dances and create a special atmosphere in the middle of the night. Previously, in the main square of the village, a theatrically staged representation of the Passion of Christ, including the Last Supper.
