Vermouth and shops with history
With this tour, we will learn about the history of historical shops and their decoration, their protagonists, their anecdotes, and curiosities. We will know about these small museums of everyday life and the vitality of one of the most beautiful cities in Catalonia.
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 shops. Its elegant streets and modernist buildings of the nineteenth-century bourgeoisie are proof of that glorious time.
Its numerous attractive shops have positioned the town as the regional centre for shopping in Tarragona. Examples of the importance of its traditional commercial sector are the various hundred-year-old shops wich are still preserved.
The tour begins in the Plaça de Prim. We visit 7 historical shops of different kinds, including a wine cellar and a grocery store where we go in-depth into the culture and history of the Vermouth of Reus. Two vermouth samples and hazelnuts of DO Reus are included.
Fridays at 5.30 pm.
