Reus is the capital of Baix Camp region. With its 107,000 inhabitants, it is the second largest city in the province of Tarragona. Its historic centre is a beautiful place with modernist buildings and elegant shopping streets. The city reached its peak between the 18th and 19th centuries, when it became the second largest city in Catalonia, thanks to the moonshine industry and later, the textile and vermouth industries. A reflection of this economic power is its modernist heritage, the pride of the city. But beyond modernism, we find much more in Reus: History, traditions, legends, mysteries, illustrious personalities, popular sayings, curiosities, and secrets… Join this tour to learn about the general history of Reus, its culture and traditions, in a fun way, through curiosities that are sometimes hidden in the city.
To begin the route, we learn about the medieval history of Reus in Plaça del Mercadal, in Saint Peter Church and in Plaça del Castell. Afterward, we have a break to taste the typical dessert of Reus, Menjablanc, made by the oldest candy shop in the town. Next, we pass by El Pallol shopping mall to see the remains of the medieval wall hidden underground (outside view). After that, we focus on modern history and head to General Prim Square, where we get to know this illustrious figure. Afterward, we walk Sant Joan street, where we find the modernist houses: Tarrats, Rull, Gasull and the Anti-tuberculosis Pavilion. Next, we head to Lovera street, where we visit the 18th-century Bofarull Palace, (whenever possible, since the opening hours might change) which shows the fortune made by Bofarull family thanks to liquor trade. After that, we also visit the Vermouth Museum, which exhibits more than 5,000 objects related to this typical beverage that you will be able to taste.
