About Reus

Situated in the province of Tarragona in NE Spain, Reus is 4 miles north of the Mediterranean port of Salou. The earliest records of Reus date from about the middle of the I3th century and the town is now made up of two parts, the old and the new, separated by the Calle Arrabal, which occupies the site of the old city wall. The old town is centered on the Placa del Mercado, with narrow winding lanes while the new part of the town dates from about the middle of the 18th century, with wide, straight streets.

Reus is the hometown of the great architect Antoni Gaudí and much of the city is designed in the Modernist style. Reus has Mediterranean weather with hot summers and mild winters. July and August are very hot. There is a small amount of rain during the summer although the autumn months are the wettest.

The Pere Mata Institute designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Domènech experimented with a number of new architectural approaches in Reus, and the city boasts the greatest number of buildings by him after Barcelona.

Casa Navas has been declared an historic-artistic monument with a gothic façade and richly ornamental interior. The Priory Church of St. Pere is the most noteworthy building surviving from old Reus. Built in 1512, it has a graceful Gothic nave with the sacred heart atop an arch. A magnificent group of altar screens was built up over the centuries, largely destroyed in 1936, leaving just the main 16th Century screen surviving. The hexagonal gothic bell tower is 60 metres and seven storeys high, with cross-vaulted ceilings, all topped by a pinnacled spire.

The 17th Century church of Misericordia Sanctuary stands on the spot where tradition has it that the Virgin appeared to a shepherd girl in 1592, freeing Reus from the plague which was threatening it. El Palau Bofarull was commissioned around 1760. Its façade has Churrigueresque features, crowned with a majestic coat of arms, while the interior features a neo-classical hall with fine frescoes and wall paintings thought to be by Flaugier.

There are 4 major museums in Reus, displaying archaeological artefacts through to fine art.
