Reus Car Hire - Did You Know?

  • Reus is the birthplace of the famous architect, Antoni Gaudi.
  • With incredible rock formations in the area, Reus has become a popular centre for rock climbers.
  • The city is known for its many fiestas and carnivals.
  • In the 10th and 11th century, the town was deserted. It was repopulated in the 12th century and has grown in regional importance since.
  • The area used to be an important wine producer but the Phylloxera epidemic of the late 19th century wiped out all of the vines and the region replaced them with hazelnuts, now its main agricultural product.

Reus Mini Guide

Reus lies slightly inland from Tarragona on Spain's north east coast. It is the capital of the province of Baix-Camp in Catalonia and has a population of around 100,000 people. Traditionally a wine and spirit producing region, it is now attracting tourists who come to the Costa Dorada looking for some summer sun. A tour of the city also reveals a rich culture. Reus has a theatre in the Plaza de Rim, fine examples of modernist architecture, a reading centre, a 16th century Gothic church and a bell tower which lets you look out over the whole of the Golden Coast.

Art lovers will be drawn to its excellent archaeological museum Salvador Vilaseca and the regional history museum which has collections of art and sculptures. Visitors can stay in a number of hotels including the three star Quality Reus Hotel in the city centre which has satellite television, air conditioning, a restaurant, bar and many other facilities. Rooms start at the reasonable rate of around 50 Euros per night. Many people who go to Reus use it as a stepping stone from Barcelona and Tarragona on to the beach resorts of Salou and Cambrils.

Reus Church

The amusement park of Port Aventura, which has many attractions, is also a draw. At Port Aventura, which was partly conceived by Universal Studios, the rides are separated into different sections of the world. The Dragon Khan ride in the China section is the biggest in the park and used to be the biggest in Europe with a stomach churning total of eight loop-the-loops. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants which will make sure that you can enjoy a full day out in comfort at the theme park. While Port Aventura is a good place for families to spend the day, there is something for everyone in the surrounding areas of Reus.

Hikers will travel there to go and see the Mediterranean Forest in the Mountains of Prades while wine tasters will head for the Priorat region. Reus has its own airport with European flights through Ryanair and other carriers and has a regular intake of more than a million passengers. The airport was built close to the Costa Dorado beaches, and has recently been renovated leaving it in good condition. If you decide not to hire a car, buses go from the airport to Barcelona, Tarragona and the nearby beach resorts as well.
