Reus, Gaudí & Domènech i Montaner
The city of Reus, with 107,000 inhabitants, is well known for its modernist heritage, the most important in the province of Tarragona.
The city is the birthplace of Gaudí and a place chosen by numerous renowned architects, such as Lluís Domènech and Montaner, who left his artistic mark in Reus with numerous works.
With this tour we will learn about two great geniuses of modernism: Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner. As for Gaudí we will talk about his origins: his family, his childhood in Reus, his time as a student, and everything that formed him as a person and as an architect. As for Domènech i Montaner, we will see his works in the urban centre of Reus while we talk about his life and his general work.
We will start the visit in the Gaudí Centre, a visitor centre located in the Plaça del Mercadal and dedicated to Gaudí. In this modern and interactive space we will discover models, audiovisuals and other resources that will help us to understand the genius of Gaudinian architecture. Next, we take a walk through the centre of Reus and see the main modernist façades, among which the ones built by Lluís Domènech, such as Casa Navàs, Casa Rull and Casa Gasull. We also pass by Gaudí’s birthplace, where we talk about his childhood and family backgrounds from. Opcionally, we can also visit Insitute Pere Mata, a modernist psychiatric hospital located on the outskirts and built by Domènech i Montaner.
