Reus modernista.

Reus is a local city of reference. It has an interesting commercial history, with Art Nouveau houses and palaces, having produced important architects, such as Rubió i Bellver (who designed Casa Serra) or Domènch i Montaner (Institut Pere Mata, Casa Navàs, Casa Rull, Casa Gasull...) Even today, Reus is a major player in the commercial life of the south of Catalonia. In the 18th and 19th centuries the international prices for liqueurs, dried fruits and eggs were set in Reus. From this period comes the popular local expression, ‘Reus, París, London…..and Monterols Street’.

Cistercian Route.

In the interior of the country, we can find the Cistercian Route, which includes Cistercian monasteries built in the medieval period. You can visit the monastery of Poblet, which still has a monastic community, and which hosts the tombs of the most important monarchs of the Crown of Aragon. Santes Creus is another monastery, with beautiful cloisters, surrounded by vineyards. You could also visit the convent at Vallbona de les Monges, complementing the route with a visit to the cities of Montblanc and Valls. Montblanc is famous for its intact medieval wall, and for being, in Catalonia, the origin of the myth of Saint George. Valls is well-known for having seen the origin of ‘calçots’ – shallots which are flame-roasted and eating with a special sauce, in winter.
