A large area in the centr of Reus with some interesting buildings. Not a remarkable space but I did visit on a dull day and it was fairly deserted. Gaudi museum is on one side - but it was shut!!

This is a big square with the Junta office on one side. There are several bars which are good for relaxing and people watching.

Sat with a glass of wine, mid evening, watching the families go by. Open space for kiddies to run. No traffic. Attractive buildings (particularly Casa Navas) What could be more pleasant? Nothing. We enjoyed our Reus break nightstop and would recommend it for a visit.

If you really want to feel the nice atmosphere of the city you must come to this place. It is the meeting point of local people where they sit down and have drinks in the terraces. The "vermout" is the local drink which definitely you...More

The highlights of the square are the Gaudi Center (which you should definitely visit) and some of the beautiful Art Nouveau houses there, notably Casa Navas. Since it's the central square, it's quite lively and you can't miss it when in Reus.
