Reus

May 19, 2009

Reus is an absolutely charming little city. It is about a 20 minute bus ride from the Reus airport which is inevitably where you´ll end up while trying to get to Barcelona via Ryanair. It is almost exactly like Barcelona only smaller and it lacks the prostitution and drugs that are frequently offered in Barcelona. In Reus, kids walk on the street; people are friendly, well-dressed, and active; and the shopping is great (if you have money). The city even has a street that is exactly like La Rambla in Barcelona, but it is clean, devoid of street performers and kiosks, and a relaxing walk. My favorite part of the city was just walking and seeing what there is to see. The parks have some similar mosaic tiling to Barcelona and Gaudi´s influence is also visible in the city. The parks are perfect for reading or a nap and for 5 euro round trip from the airport, it´s definitely a perfect day trip.

Cool graffiti. That little girl on the right is not real like I thought.
