The cathedrals of wine

Modernist route of jujol
Josep Maria Jujol, a disciple of Antoni Gaudí, left his mark on numerous Tarragona towns. Some of the works that must be visited are the Sanctuary of the Mare de Deu de Montserrat de Montferri (just 2 km from Vilardida), the Casa Bofarull de Pallaresos and the Temple del Sagrat Cor de Vistabella.
The Roman route is the guide to visit the different monuments that make up the fantastic Roman architectural ensemble that is still preserved. For this reason, Tarragona was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Reus, hometown of Antoni Gaudí, preserves up to 80 buildings listed as Modernist monuments, such as the Casa Navàs, the Institut Pere Mata, the Casa Rull and the Casa Gasull. The City Council has developed different cultural routes in the city, such as the Vermouth Route, the Gaudí Route and the Modernisme Route.
