The Figueres Tourist Office is located in the centre of the town, at the Casa Empordà, the former municipal abattoir built in 1904 and designed by the architect Josep Azemar. The building, an outstanding example of Catalan Modernism, stands just a few metres from Salvador Dalí’s Birthplace and the Dalí Theatre-Museum. Its central body houses a room that stages temporary exhibitions of a cultural nature. The Office has free Wi-Fi, a tactile screen with Internet connection to make tourist consultations on Figueres and the region. Outside there is a tactile interactive totem with 24-hour service.
The team that runs the Office attends to both local people and visitors, providing them with extensive tourist information on the town, the Empordà and Catalonia in general. It also offers personalised attention, adapting to each visitor’s profile, and proposes activities for exploring the district.
The Figueres Tourist Office, open all year round, is located at Plaça del Escorxador nº 2. The city also has three tourist information points, open only in the summer months, located at the Figueres-Vilafant AVE (High-Speed Train) station, at the railway station and beside the Dalí Theatre-Museum, the town’s prime attraction for visitors.
