A primer on Modernism
This is an interesting and fun walk through the center of Reus where, aside from simply enjoying the ambiance of the stores in downtown, you can see the 23 buildings which comprise the Modernist Route.
The route is indicated by plaques which give you some information about when the buildings were built and the architects behind them. It’s a great way to broaden your knowledge about this most Catalan of styles and just enjoy a beautiful day in the city.
To be honest, many of the buildings rival those found in downtown Barcelona. In fact, Gaudí was born in Reus, a fact which helps explain the city’s love for Modernism and the artist himself, a love that is palpable as you explore the city center.
