Tarragona, Spain

Reus is the capital of Baix Camp, in the province of Tarragona, in Catalonia, Spain. The area has always been an important producer of wines and spirits, and gained continental importance at the time of the Phylloxera plague. Nowadays it is known by its commercial activity, for being a centre for rock-climbing and as the birthplace of architect Antoni Gaudí. The city of Reus has many Catalan modernist buildings. Although Antoni Gaudí was born in Reus, there are no designed by him; there are however numerous modernist buildings from his colleagues as Lluís Domènech i Montaner, Pere Caselles i Tarrats and Pere Domènech Roura. Reus is close to the resort town of Salou and one of Europe's biggest theme parks at PortAventura.
