The Bofarrul Palace is located at Calle Llovera, 15, in the center of Reus, near the Plaza Prim. In 1760 Josep Bofarrull y Gavalda was given a title by the Spanish king. He was the mayor of the city and his family was very rich. The palace was built in 1770 by the architect Francesc Bofarull Gavalda, the brother of the mayor. The palace has a beautiful and large ballroom that dates to 1788 and is decorated with paintings by Pere Pau Montanya on the ceiling, with themes related to trade and a glorification of the Bourbon dynasty. Pere Pau Montanya was considered the best painter of his time.
The Bofarull Palace was occupied by the Bofarull family until 1836, the year it went to the family of Quero Rios, the Count of Rius, by inheritance. During the civil war is was occupied by different entities, but in 1986 it was bought by the Diputacion de Tarragona to hold the Conservatory of Music. The palace was restored by the architect Xavier Amoros.
