Casa Rull in Reus

If you wish to immerse yourself in Modernisme only for a few hours nearby, we suggest that you visit Reus, at 35 km from L’Hospitalet. Reus can be reached on the motorway AP-7.
 
About 80 buildings are officially listed as representative of Modernist architecture, to mention only a few, Casa Navàs, the Institute Pere Mata, Casa Rull und Casa Gasull, which were built by the architect Lluís Domènec  (1850-1923), one of the most influential representatives of Modernisme. Reus may actually be called the cradle of Modernisme, since its most famous exponent, Antoni Gaudì (1852-1926), was born in Reus and spent his youth here.
 

Reus honors its most famous son in the new Gaudí Centre, an innovative museum space, where Modernisme can be experienced hands-on through interactive displays and where one can explore the life and work of the famous artist. For opening hours see www.gaudicentre.cat
