The abandoned tomb of Lídia (ENG)

Last July my friend Margarita and I went to visit the tomb of Lídia de Cadaqués.
We thought it was a pity that a person with such an interesting life related to Salvador Dalí was in a total abandonment, so we decided it was time to give her some care.
It took us a nice while to clean and plant some flowers.

She was born in Cadaqués in 1866 and she died in Agullana the 30th December 1946.
It is said that the day of her death, the strong wind characteristic in the Empordà, the Tramuntana, was stronger than usual and that was probably due to the fact that people believed she was the last witch from Cadaqués.

Whatever, Lídia became one of the closest persons to Dalí while he stayed in Cadaqués. He said about her that she had the“most paranoiac brain aside from his that he has ever know”.

At the back of one of his own pictures she wrote a sentence: “This woman is the witch responsible of all the affair of Dalí and many more things”
