Mas Miró Sketching Tour

We’re back with our Sketching Tours! This time with a new proposal that takes us to discover the Mas Miró in Mont-roig, the farmhouse where the artist Joan Miró spent his summer holidays from the age of 18 until his 80’s.

The Mas Miró is located in a splendid estate where we find not only the residence but also the employee’s house that Miró painted in his famous work La Masía. We will visit the interior of the Mas, its rooms, the cellar, and the workshop that Miró had built to create his first sculptures. We will talk about his family history, his personality and his artistic universe while you learn about his works created in this place. Throughout the visit, we will invite you to make your own creations using different techniques and materials, some even unusual, such as wine and elements of the earth, with which we will make a work of land art. An experience that will encourage you to experiment and play with art!

The material is included by us and will be previously disinfected and separated by individual or family packs. We follow the safety protocol established by the Mas Miró Mont-roig Foundation.

Visita guiada Reus

Vermouth and shops with history, Thursdays and Fridays at 6pm

Months of June, July and August every Thursday (catalan/english) and every Friday (spanish/english) at 6pm

Rest of the year every Friday at 6pm (catalan or spanish/english)

Reus became the second largest city in Catalonia in the 18th and 19th centuries due to its industrial and commercial activity, based on liquors, spirits and vermouths, the textile industry and its proximity trade. Its elegant streets and modernist buildings of the nineteenth-century bourgeoisie are proof of that glorious time.

Its numerous and attractive shops have positioned the town as the commercial capital of the province of Tarragona. Examples of the importance of its traditional commercial activity are the various historical and centenarian shops that are still persevered.

With this tour we will learn about the modern history of Reus, linked to these economic activities, trade and vermouth, as well as the history of its oldest shops: their decoration, their protagonists, their anecdotes and curiosities. We will discover small museums of everyday life and the vitality of one of the most beautiful cities in Catalonia.

Itinerary

The tour begins in the Plaça del Mercadal, the site of the old market since medieval times. We will visit 7 historical shops of different kinds, including a wine cellar and a grocery store where we will go in depth into the culture and history of the Vermouth of Reus, a product we will also taste.
