There aren’t any car hire companies based at Figueres-Vilafant Station. So if you’re arriving a Figueres-Vilafant, you’ll need to make your way to the city centre to pick up a car hire. There is, however, a free shuttle bus between the station and the city centre every 15 minutes.
As for the city itself, Figueres is most notable for being home to the Dali Theatre-Museum. It’s an absolute treat for any fans of Salvador Dali. In addition to housing the largest collection of Dali works in the world, the artist himself helped to design it. On a visit, make sure you also see the jewellery collection he designed. The collection has a separate entrance so can be easily missed by visitors. For more Dali, it’s worth driving to Cadaques on the Costa Brava coast. There, you’ll find his old home, which has been turned into a museum. Cadaques is also just a really pretty seaside town.
Girona Airport is the nearest airport. It’s about 50kms south of Figueres and also offers car hire services.
