Why go to Reus?
Barcelona might have taken the credit for celebrated architect Antoni Gaudi, but it was actually in Reus that the artist was born and lived for the first years of his life. The city is filled with stunning architecture and tributes to Gaudi, although in a surprising twist of irony, none of the buildings were actually designed by Gaudi himself. Regardless, travellers still flock to the charming Spanish city in the heart of Catalonia to follow his story at the Gaudi Centre located in Plaça del Mercadal. There are a range of audiovisual exhibitions and interactive displays that allow visitors to touch, listen and feel his works including the workshop he used to build the famous Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona.
