Stretching out across the El Camp plain, Reus stands out by its thriving economy and cultural boom, embodied by the Lectura Centre, an institution founded in 1859 that harbours a precious library and fascinating works of art. Although quite close to the coast, Antoni Gaudí's birthplace has remained pleasantly peaceful compared to the boisterous Costa Daurada. It is however not short of visitors, who come to admire one of the largest groups of Modernist buildings in Catalonia.
