Set in the heart of Figueres, in the upper part of the Rambla, right in the historical and business centre of the city and just a short walk from its most charismatic buildings: the Dalí Museum, the Toy Museum of Catalonia, El Jardí Theatre, and more. It is the ideal hotel for weekend breaks and shopping in Figueres. The Duran Hotel & Restaurant in Figueres is a high category 3-star hotel of recognised prestige, totally refurbished in contemporary style. It is the city’s most emblematic hotel, as the building was originally an old inn dating back to 1855, El Celler de Ca la Teta.
Our restaurant, the Restaurant Duran in Figueres centre, is open every single day of the year. It has always been part of the hotel, and in fact it is the oldest part of the building. It dates back to 1855 and was originally an old inn that has gradually evolved over time to become a benchmark in Catalan cuisine. The hotel was a favourite haunt of eminent figures such as Salvador Dalí, for whom the restaurant was a meeting point in Figueres. El Celler de Ca la Teta now forms part of the Figueres Dalí tour, which takes in all the painter’s favourite haunts.
Figueres is the capital of the comarca of Alt Empordà, in the province of Girona, Catalonia, Spain. The town is the birthplace of artist Salvador Dalí, and houses the Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí, a large museum designed by Dalí himself which attracts many visitors.
Alt Empordà is a region with a great cultural and landscape wealth, marked by its geographic location in the most northeastern area of the Iberian Peninsula, has converted it into an area of passage (persons, goods, etc.).
