Reus

Reus is a town in the Spanish autonomous region of Catalunya. Reus is 13 km from Tarragona and close to the Costa Dorada. This medieval town with nearly a thousand years of history enjoyed its period of glory in the 18th century thanks to the export of wine and spirits. The main modernist buildings date from the late 19th and early 20th century. Reus was the most important city after Barcelona.

Reus is the birthplace of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. Tourism has lately grown thanks to the proximity of the coast and quick connections to resorts like Salou, La Pineda and Cambrils.

Reus exudes a typically Catalan atmosphere with a Mediterranean touch. The city is known for its good shopping, its modernist architecture and the links with the universal Gaudi, designer of many famous buildings, especially in Barcelona.

Reus is the leading example of the modernist style in Europe. If you are interested in Modernism you can take the route that will pass 26 of the most important monuments of this style. You will see for example the works of the architect Luis Domenech Montaner, which include the Pere Mate Institute, Nava house and Rull Gasull house.

You can also research the Gaudi route in Reus. Gaudi was born on June 25, 1852 and deceased June 10, 1926 and is regarded as the founder of modernism also called Jugendstil or Art Nouveau. Gaudi designed about 1900 buildings and objects of which the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is the best known. In the center of Reus at the Plaça del Marcadal you can find the Gaudi Centre. This is an interactive museum representing Gaudiís life by means of replicas of his works and video presentations.

The Archaeological Museum Salvador Vilaseca has collections and exhibitions of objects from the prehistoric to medieval times, and offers an overview of Gaudi's life and modernism.

From Reus you are in no time on the Costa Dorada, where 150 km of golden beaches are waiting for you. Special bus lines take you in no time to Salou, La Pineda, Cambrils or Sitges.

Reus is a great place for shopping as well. You can start in the center where plenty of boutiques and fashion shops are located. In the center you will find a wide choice of cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants for a nice evening out.
