Gala Dalí: the Mediterranean dream at La Roca Village

La Roca Village and the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation come together on an extraordinary project to unveil Gala’s identity, marking 103 years since her birth. ‘The Awakening of the Myth: Gala Dalí’, a year-long exhibition that delves into Gala's enigmatic persona through her fashion archive, is now open to the public. This visionary showcase not only redefines Gala's legacy but also showcases remarkable contributions from illustrator Carla Fuentes and photographer Jordi Bernadó. Presented across three seasons, the current ‘Spring-Summer Collection’ provides a window into Gala's world.

A must-visit for those exploring Barcelona, this exhibition, started at Púbol Castle, offering a sneak peek of the artistic installation which has now arrived at La Roca Village. Celebrating art, fashion and community while honouring Gala's enduring influence, it promises an unforgettable experience.

I want to go down in history as a legend. When all this is over, when everything that is murky now is clean, when time has passed, people will talk about me for good or ill.”
