Reus, located in the Tarragona province of Catalonia in Spain. It is a perfect location for those looking for both a summer sun holiday and a city break, with its easy access to holiday resorts and nearby cities on the Spanish mainland.
Reus is a stone’s throw away from the marvellous Barcelona so don’t think of flying here as a last option, there is so much available after you land. As well as Barcelona, you are also near Salou, an ideal family beach resort.
Reus is the home town of Antoni Gaudi the famous Catalan modernist architect, although ironically there are no examples of his work here. There’s a modernist route through the town that you can walk which bypasses all the best buildings. In June the town enjoys its biggest fiestas, and you’ll see live music in all the town squares every night, and street entertainments.
There are a number of bars and restaurants in Reus, showcasing the Spanish cuisine. During the summer months summer bars and terraces pop up across the town.
Reus can be your gateway to exploring the Catalan region of Spain.
