A walk around is short and bried. But take a seat at any bar or cafe, and admire the view and feel the atmosphere of the city and people from Reus and around the world.

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.
