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 origins of Reus history and all the secrets of Plaça del Mercadal. After that, we visit Saint Peter’s Church and the bell tower, Plaça de Fossar Vell, where the old cemetery was located, Plaça Peixateries Velles, the old fish market and Plaça del Castell, where we talk about the numerous conflicts between the medieval lord of Reus and the archbishop of Tarragona. Later, 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 do part of the modernist route. Next, we go and see Gaudí’s birthplace, and to finish we also visit Vermouth Museum, where we learn about the secrets of vermouth and taste it.
