Salvador Dali house and museum

As a testament to the great surrealist Salvador Dali, who was born and died on the site, the Torre Galatea in Figueres, Spain, is oddly adorned with giant eggs as part of the larger Dali Theatre-Museum complex.

Named after the painter's wife, the current home to the Gala-Salvador DalĂ­ Foundation is not open to the public but can be admired from the outside.

The tower is an expansion of the museum, which is hailed as the largest surrealist work in the world and for some, makes just as little sense as the rest of Dali's work
